Environmental Principles, 2nd Edition(PDF) traces the evolution of environmental principles from their origins as indefinite political slogans reflecting doubts about environmental hazards to their personification in enforceable laws. Environmental law has always reacted to risks posed by industrial society but the new generation of risks has needed a new set of environmental principles, developing from a combination of public fears, ethics, science, and established legal practice.
