Pressestimmen

"A comprehensive and invaluable compendium of two decades of scholarship and jurisprudence on the legal, social, and economic dimensions of pollution regulation, control, and prevention. Written largely from an American perspective, the volume draws important lessons from the comparative, European experience, as well." --David A. Sonnenfeld, Professor and Chair, Department of Environmental Studies, SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry "For teachers, students, and active citizens, this comprehensive text clearly and superbly covers the complex subjects of environmental pollution, law, policy, and economics over a broad and dynamic reality. A virtuoso achievement by two seasoned scholars and practitioners." --Ralph Nader -- Ralph Nader "This is an impressive book that covers a broad variety of topics with clarity and authority. Ashford and Caldart provide students with historical context which aids in understanding the purpose and structure of regulatory programs. Moreover, important economic and scientific policy themes are seamlessly woven throughout the text giving a rich understanding of the theory and practice underlying various regulatory programs."--Timothy F. Malloy, UCLA School of Law -- Timothy F. Malloy "Ashford and Caldart offer an extremely thorough and knowledgable treatment of environmental law and policy. The most important aspect of this book is that it offers prominent coverage of 'next generation' environmental strategies, such as information disclosure, economic incentives, and private certification."--David M. Driesen, Andrea R. Cooney Professor of Law, Syracuse University College of Law -- David M. Driesen "Ashford and Caldart have produced an extraordinary book sweeping across the scientific complexity, legal underpinnings, economic logic, and policy challenges of environmental protection. With its encyclopedic range and valuable detailed analyses of the core statutes addressing air and water pollution, waste, and chemical exposures as well as other issues, this book offers an indispensable foundation for those seeking to understand society's approach to environmental challenges." --Daniel C. Esty, Hillhouse Professor of Environmental Law and Policy, Yale Law School -- Daniel Esty "This book explores not only the basic environmental pollution control laws but also, and of fundamental importance, the ways in which these laws do or do not lead to cleaner production. Its explanations of various concepts and legal tools will be useful to both students and practitioners." --John C. Dernbach, Professor of Law, Widener University Law School -- John C. Dernbach "An excellent, provocative book by two leadings scholars that challenges much of the accepted wisdom that has guided public policy. Agree or not, it is thoughtful "must reading" for everyone who is serious about environmental law and policy." --E. Donald Elliott, former General Counsel, U.S. EPA; Adjunct Professor of Law, Yale and Georgetown Law Schools; Partner and Head of Environmental Health and Safety Department, Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP -- E.
