How should we strike a balance between the benefits of centralized and local governance, and how important is context to selecting the right policy tools? This uniquely broad overview of the field illuminates our understanding of environmental federalism and informs our policy-making future. Professor Kalyani Robbins has brought together an impressive team of leading environmental federalism scholars to provide a collection of chapters, each focused on a different regime. This review of many varied approaches, including substantial theoretical material, culminates in a comparative analysis of environmental federalism and consideration of what each system might learn from the others. The Law and Policy of Environmental Federalism includes clear descriptive portions that make it a valuable teaching resource, as well as original theory and a depth of policy analysis that will benefit scholars of federalism or environmental and natural resources law. The value of its analysis for real-world decision-making will make it a compelling read for practitioners in environmental law or fields concerned with federalism issues, including those in government or NGOs, as well as lobbyists.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`This book is an extraordinary piece of scholarship by top experts in the field. It challenges conventional assumptions concerning environmental federalism and offers new insights into the effects of law and policy on intergovernmental relations. The book explores how climate change is posing novel challenges to federal/state relations and it provides valuable comparative perspectives based on experience in other countries.' -- Robert V. Percival, University of Maryland, Francis King Carey School of Law, US
`While much of the debate about federalism in environmental law has been focused on pollution laws in the United States, this book covers the full range of environmental issues and looks beyond US borders. The Law and Policy of Environmental Federalism makes it clear that the previous focus on pollution laws provided only a partial glimpse of the federalism issues.' -- Daniel Farber, University of California, Berkeley, US
