This may be the book to guide advocates and citizens through our complex environmental laws. . . . Not a critique of the pollution laws, this is a detailed summary of their provisions, such as who is responsible for administration; criteria and schedules to be met; citizens' right to bring suit; and the like. Not easy reading, it beats hacking through the language of the laws themselves. Library Journal
Pollution Law Handbook is a comprehensive yet accessible guide to eight major federal statutes concerned with controlling pollution. Written for attorneys and their corporate clients concerned with environmental matters, the handbook is designed to help the reader fully comprehend both the general intent and the essential provisions of each statute--many of which seem convoluted, confusing, and unduly complex in their original statutory text. The eight statutes selected for inclusion are those which provide the principal authority for regulating air, water, and land pollution, and toxic waste.
