Stensvaag`s Materials On Environmental Law


Stensvaag's user-friendly text serves as an excellent introduction to environmental law. It is a manageable length, yet contains a mixture of cases, readings, and selections from the most important writers in the field, along with excerpts from key law review articles, the latest relevant developments in Congress and in the courts, and even pithy cartoons by Scott Adams and Gary Larson. It also includes the latest Clean Air Act compliance figures from the Environmental Protection Agency, so readers can determine the compliance status of their communities and consider the regulatory consequences.
