Environment Law Review--1970.
Sherrod, H. Floyd; And Others
This is the first of several volumes to be published annually in the field of environmental law. It contains material from periodicals published in early 1970, 1969, and several articles of special significance which appeared in periodicals bearing 1968 dates. It has been collected primarily for lawyers so they may have, in convenient reference form, the notable current literature produced each year in the environmental control field. The content is divided into four parts: (1) The Theoretical Framework affords varying overall perspectives on the role of the law in environmental control. Two views are given, one of regulation to be performed by agencies other than courts, and the other, the role of the courts as central to the halting of pollution. (2) Particular Pollution Problems deals with population, pesticides, noise, and weather. (3) Legislative and Administrative Action is concerned with the establishment and operation of administrative bodies with environmental control responsibilities. Congressional and Executive jurisdiction over environmental matters, air and water pollution, and land use problems are discussed. (4) Judicial Action focuses on the role of the courts in environmental control. Also included are forwards by Senator Edmund Muskie and Dr. Eugene Odum, a cross-reference table, and a subject-author index. (BL)
