    Environmental Law and Regulations to Protect People helps students master concepts of environmental law and public well-being by combining legal concepts with actual cases to show how conflicts are handled under current laws and regulations.

    The learning process focuses on reading legal cases to discern regulatory approaches for safeguarding people. Through the subsequent questions about each case, students are introduced to concepts and terminology, and they learn how to analyze and resolve disputes. Students also become familiar with legislative and regulatory policies and choices for addressing particular environmental problems.

    The text covers constitutional proscriptions, establishing liability, precluding environmental degradation, safeguarding environmental quality, and regulations for public health. Sample topics include negligence, nuisance, water law, handling wastes, air quality, zoning and land use, energy and hydrocarbon development, and climate change.

    Effectively blending information on current environmental issues and the legal framework for dealing with them, Environmental Law and Regulations to Protect People is designed for undergraduate courses in environmental issues and environmental law. It is also a useful adjunct to public health law classes.

    Terence J. Centner earned his LL.M in agricultural law at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville.
