Had to buy this for a class. Does a great job at explaining the basics of environmental law and policy. Great for a intro to intermediate college or advanced high school class.

Seems to contain some good information on how government functions and the establishment of environmental policy that has lead us to where we are today and where we need to go. May use it in my own teaching as supplemental reading.
