The International Handbook of Environmental Law is a major new interdisciplinary study in environmental law, providing a point of reference for the analysis of key concepts. The Handbook examines the fundamental issues likely to dictate the future direction of this fascinating field in the western world as well as those confronting developing countries. The contributors take the Kyoto Treaty as well as the recent discussions on the environment at the G8 summit in 2005 into account. The Handbook offers an analytical appraisal of the unique blend of regulation, theory, science and policy that are the foundations of environmental law. A detailed and comprehensive bibliography is included with clear reference points to websites, NGOs and policymakers. Presented in a clear and analytical style, this original reference work addresses how environmental law and science may best be able to address the key issues facing the environment in the 21st century.
