Combining the two main approaches to teaching this broad area, this volume examines environmental law, including pollution control, and the natural resources law course covering conservation, energy and other aspects. This expansion of coverage promotes a fuller understanding of these complex issues, and can provide either a once-through general understanding of this area of law, or a foundation for more intense future study. The author first reviews the environmental movement, then covers natural resource law, and then discusses pollution control and remediation. Administrative law and environmental litigation issues are covered in less depth, as they can be treated in depth in other courses. The text includes discussion of the National Environmental Policy Act and the Endangered Species Act and in-depth treatment of the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, and the "Superfund Law" (CERCLA). An accompanying teacher's manual provides additional pedagogical insight and a documents supplement offers relevant additional materials.
