The environmental devastation caused by military conflict has been witnessed in the wake of the Vietnam War, the Gulf War and the Kosovo conflict. This book brings together leading international lawyers, military officers, scientists and economists to examine the legal, political, economic and scientific implications of wartime damage to the natural environment and public health. The book considers issues raised by the application of humanitarian norms and legal rules designed to protect the environment, and the destructive nature of war. Contributors offer an analysis and critique of the existing law of war framework, lessons from peacetime environmental law, means of scientific assessment and economic valuation of ecological and public health damage, and proposals for future legal and institutional developments. This book provides a contemporary forum for interdisciplinary analysis of armed conflict and the environment, and explores ways to prevent and redress wartime environmental damage.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...exhaustive and valuable...All those who debate the need for and the means of creating wartime norms and rules or environmental protection will find ample ammunition in this impressive contribution." Environment Magazine
"This is an ambitious, multidisciplinary contribution...with a unique application of peacetime lessons of environmental and human rights law to the law of war. It uses detailed scientific and economic assessment tools to solve the extremely complicated problems of preventing, assigning liability for, and redressing ecological and human wartime damage...a must-read for anyone wishing to understand the effects of armed conflict beyond simple causalty figures or destroyed material." International Politics
"...full of detailed arguments and discussion about (a) how we could measure war's damage to the environment, and (b) whether further regulation of war will have any useful effect. The authors have done a thorough and clear job of researching the many intersections of conflict and its collateral environmental damages." ECSP Report
"This is a most valuable collection and deserves space in any library where scholars, scientists, and activists meet in their efforts to piece together the fragments of a possible future world without war." Ecoscience
