While the value of our natural resources has traditionally been viewed in narrow economic terms, in recent years we have begun to appreciate the inherent worth of our land, air, and water - a worth that is entirely unrelated to economic growth and development. The evolution of law and policy regarding natural resource and environmental issues over the past century reflects these ongoing changes in attitude. Natural Resources Policy and Law explores past, present, and future directions in natural resource and environmental law and policy, with a special emphasis on new laws and important legal cases of the past decade and their implications for the future. Its ten chapters, each written by a leading expert in the field, consider both specific concerns and broad themes, including topics such as history and evolution of natural resources law and policy; laws governing mining and minerals, oil and gas, and public lands; the relationship between environmentalism and environmental law; and future directions of the field.
