Format: Hardcover
There is a more recent edition - 3d - which has been out for several years. There is no reason anyone would buy this older - 2d - edition at this point.

Third edition corrects the few typos that apparently drove someone (previous review) to distraction.

As for substance, one must recognize the limitations of any legal text on this subject. It's like covering Constitutional Law plus multiple separate tax codes (one for air, water, waste, etc). Not an easy job, and no textbook does it perfectly. Plus, there is so much background to cover before you get to the codes: policy, science, law and economics, risk assessment. In all, the authors balance it well.

The third edition is one of the best texts, and most student-accessible, on the market for law students. I could argue with some of the case choices, and some of the case editing (cut more here, leave more there), but in general it's a solid book. I have taught Env Law with several other texts. I've used this one (3d ed) several times for classes totalling more than 150 law students. No complaints from them about book. It's a good teaching tool as long as a prof works with and beyond it.

As a law school editor, this book drove me absolutely insane with the incredible amount of typos, missing page references, and poorly laid out text. Though most of the key cases were present, this mess of a book made it hard for me to concentrate on the task at hand.

I hope that no law professor will subject her students to this mess of a book again.
