This 2007 book examines environmental law from a range of perspectives, emphasising the policy world from which environmental law is drawn and nourished. Those working within the discipline of environmental law need to engage with concepts and methods employed by disciplines other than law. The authors analyse the ways in which legal activities are supported and legitimated by work in traditional scientific or technical domains, as well as by certain more obscure but also influential cultural or philosophical assumptions. A range of regulatory techniques is explored in this book, through a close examination of both pollution control and land use. The highly complex nature of current environmental problems, demanding sophisticated and responsive legal controls, is illustrated by several in-depth case studies, including legal and policy analysis of the highly contested issues of genetically modified organisms and renewable energy projects.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'The authors of Environmental Protection, Law and Policy are to be congratulated for producing a volume which is wide-ranging in its scope yet lucid in its treatment of the legal and policy issues covered. it will undoubtedly be of considerable interest and value to all of those who wish to learn more about the various legal and policy dimensions of environmental protection. Its many virtues are likely to result in it becoming a recommended text to both undergraduate and postgraduate reading lists.' Environmental Law and Management
'This is an excellent work, worth being read by experts and beginners alike. there is much to challenge and provoke those who feel they know the field - but also much to inspire an undergraduate new to the field. Few books manage to operate at all those levels. I took it with me to a cricket ground, and started reading it during a delayed start ... there are not many text books one would find so delightfully written that you are glad the match has not started so you can continue to read. This is one.' Christine Willmore, Journal of Environmental Law
'Given the level of detail, the comprehensive sources quoted and suggestions for further reading, it is those pursuing post-graduate studies who will most benefit from the authors' endeavours. ... the reader who perseveres will be well rewarded and the authors are to be commended on a largely stimulating contribution to the 'Law in Context' series.'
