Abandoned before Publication
The Core Text Series provides students with books which cover the core of a particular subject without over-simplifying and in a way that is accessible, yet authoritative - at an affordable price.This new title deals with the domestic and global issues raised in the study of environmental law.

Environmental law is moving away from its public health origins which focused on domestic issues towards current global themes like the role of economic instruments and the application of the precautionary principle. The work stresses core concepts like sustainability throughout and integrates global thinking with domestic action.

It explores economic as well as traditional regulatory instruments to prevent harm to the environment and considers new areas of legal intervention such as climate change.""
