Book Description

December 5, 2005 1587787180 978-1587787188
Like other publications in this area, this book surveys, organizes, and explains the most important provisions of RCRA and CERCLA while providing relevant background. This publication goes beyond other publications by emphasizing the scientific, policy, and legal issues that make hazardous waste management a difficult and complex problem for Congress, EPA, and practicing lawyers. As with other areas of environmental law, the role of law is to pursue a number of distinct policies in the context of a technically challenging problem. This book explains the nature of the underlying problem that the law seeks to address, and the specific choices that the law makes in addressing it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not an easy read January 4, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very dry and not set up in an easy-to-read/organized textbook forma like I was expecting. Definitely not good for students. I had to buy this book for a class and it didn't help me one bit.

I got this book as a reference for studying for the environmental law PE exam, hoping that it would explain various aspects of the statute in plain language in an easy-to-navigate format. This book was not helpful. The language throughout the book was very subjective, lacked accuracy (I got a wrong answer to a practice problem when I first used this book for reference). The book was not well organized, and the index was not helpful with finding key terms. Reading the book is like hearing an old-timer talking out loud about his PERSONAL opinion about the regulations.

I subsequently found a book that was very helpful. It's the "Environmental Law Handbook", blue hardcover. It is much more comprehensive, well-organized, easy to navigate, with great index.
