Environmental Protection: Law and Policy, respected for its intellectual breadth and depth, is an interdisciplinary overview of Environmental Law, incorporating history, theory, litigation, regulation, policy, science, economics, and ethics. It covers the history of environmental protection; policy objectives; regulatory design strategies; and constitutional federalism and related statutory interpretation issues concerning the design and implementation of the environmental laws. Coverage also includes the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, CERCLA, and other pollution control statutes; a chapter on climate change that discusses scientific, policy, program design, and statutory authority questions; and natural resource management issues (including the National Environmental Policy Act, the Endangered Species Act, and limited coverage of national forest management).
