"Most literature on comparative environmental law either focuses on a two-way comparison of legal systems or simply juxtaposes environmental features of two or more legal systems without engaging in any analysis of the comparison. However, this book takes a different approach: treating legal cultures as the objects of comparison it provides practical comparisons among various institutions, tools and norms in environmental law. This arrangement and organisation of the material reverses the more traditional presentation of comparative environmental law as a series of countries within which separate descriptions are respectively presented. That traditional presentation leaves to the reader the tasks of thematising and comparing. In contrast, in this book the student is presented with environmental legal themes, with examples and case studies drawn from various countries and compared in order to help understand the theme. Case studies draw on the authors' experiences in a range of legal systems, including in Australia, Brazil, China, Chile, Ethiopia, Germany, India, Nigeria, Slovakia and the USA. The comparative nature of the book allows domestic professionals to develop skills to enable them to understand and advocate broader contexts for clients, and helps students to be more aware of specific legal systems. The book is aimed at advanced undergraduate and postgraduate students of environmental law as well as researchers and practitioners"-- Provided by publisher.
