Environmental law envisions ecological systems as existing in an equilibrium state, reinforcing a rigid legal framework unable to absorb rapid environmental changes and innovations in sustainability. For the past four decades, "resilience theory," which embraces uncertainty and nonlinear dynamics in complex adaptive systems, has provided a robust, invaluable foundation for sound environmental management. Reforming American law to incorporate this knowledge is the key to sustainability. This volume features top legal and resilience scholars speaking on resilience theory and its legal applications to climate change, biodiversity, national parks, and water law.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book not only provides a conceptual backbone but also gives particular examples and specific proposals that will be of great interest to lawyers and agency managers. The text will be a major help to legal reformers and implementers struggling with this important and timely issue. -- Robert L. Fischman, Indiana University Maurer School of Law An excellent and timely account of how the law does influence, could influence, and should influence resilience in linked social-ecological systems. I strongly recommend this volume to natural resource management researchers and practitioners. -- Brian Walker, author of Resilience Thinking: Sustaining Ecosystems and People in a Changing World This pathbreaking book brings together leading scholars who offer new thinking on how law might better be reconciled with resilience science. This means more than simply tinkering with existing approaches to management of natural resources. It requires building resilience into social-ecological systems, including the law itself. This is no small undertaking, and this book sets us on the right path by raising many of the necessary questions. -- Bradley C. Karkkainen, University of Minnesota Law School Social-Ecological Resilience and Law turns compelling theories into practical suggestions for building a more resilient future and should be read by academics and policymakers alike. -- Joshua Farley BioScience
