This volume brings together 40 readings from lawyers, economists, environmentalists, and legal scholars, to help introduce readers to the major theoretical approaches in the field of environmental law and policy. The selections have been extensively edited to facilitate accessibility, and each chapter has an introduction highlighting the most important contributions of the readings. The chapters end with an extensive set of notes and questions, designed both to provide a deeper understanding of the readings, as well as to introduce and critique a broader set of perspectives. The Foundations of Law Series offers a collection of comprehensive readings that provide an interdisciplinary perspective on a substantive legal field. Edited by scholars who have made important contributions, the readings are designed to provide an accessible introduction to the leading scholarship in a field. Accompanying notes and questions permit students to engage fully in the literature on their own, as well as to aid their understanding of material covered in classes.
