This timely two-volume set brings together several of the most important and influential journal articles and papers in the broad field of climate law.

The editor has selected essential scholarship on the international law making process and mitigation, which discusses important factors including emissions, trading, taxes and the CDM. In addition, the collection discusses adaptation (in a wide variety of fields such as sea level rise, water, biodiversity, cities and agriculture), liability, climate justice and human rights, and climate engineering. Along with an original introduction by Professor Verschuuren, this collection is particularly valuable to university and academic institution libraries, allowing for a convenient single access point to the linchpin articles of the emerging field of climate law.
