A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. The broad national coverage and array of topics in Natural Resources Law is of interest to readers across the country. Most cases are introduced with a photo or map of the place, along with a context-setting paragraph. The text conveys the drama behind resource disputes and policy and the love-of-place. Each group of cases--both foundational cases as well as new decisions--begins with a factually rich discussion problem tailored to the cases that follow. Many problems mirror traditional essay exam questions; others raise contemporary policy issues. This highly teachable book groups readings into discrete, assignment-sized chunks of 25-40 pages, allowing coverage of 2-4 cases or one problem during each class section. The main emphasis is on primary sources, and each chapter opens with relevant statutory and regulatory sections. The Third Edition sees an expanded emphasis on energy, exploring the Deepwater Horizon disaster, fracking, renewable energy development on federal lands, and the Keystone XL Pipeline. Climate change is addressed in every chapter. More great problems appear alongside photographs and slides. New cases and notes examine Connecticut v. American Electric Powe r (climate change and nuisance law); Summers v. Earth Island Institute and Monstanto v. Geerston Seed Farms (standing); Carcieri v. Salazar (Indian Reorganization Act); Stop the Beach Renourishment v. Florida DEP and PPL Montana, LLC v. Montana (public trust); Arizona Cattle Growers Ass n v. Salazar and Center for Biological Diversity v. Kempthorne (Endangered Species Act); Edwards Aquifer Authority v. Day (water law); National Mining Ass n v. Jackson (mountaintop removal/valley fill); and Casitas Municipal Water Dist. v. United States (regulatory takings and water rights.)
