Beyond Environmental Law

Policy Proposals for a Better Environmental Future

This book offers a vision for the third generation of environmental law designed to enhance its ability to protect our environment. The book presents two core proposals, an Environmental Legacy Act to preserve a defined environmental legacy for future generations and an Environmental Competition Statute to spark movement to new clean technologies. The first proposal would require, for the first time, that the federal government define an environmental legacy that it must preserve for future generations. The second would establish a market competition to maximize environmental protection. The balance of the book provides complementary proposals and analysis. The first generation of environmental law sought broad protection of health and the environment in a fairly fragmented way. The second sought to enhance environmental law's efficiency through cost-benefit analysis and market mechanisms. These proposals seek to create a broader, more creative approach to solving environmental problems.

Practice, Problems, and Perspectives

Property Law: Practice, Problems, and Perspectives, Second Edition is a truly contemporary 1L Property text. This book is distinguished by its extraordinarily clear and engaging writing, and by the degree to which the authors make the material accessible and enjoyable to students in this foundational course. The authors embrace the task of training lawyers, and as a result, their text regularly asks students to answer questions and solve problems from the perspective of attorneys. The authors delve fully into legal doctrine and address profound policy issues in a direct and understandable manner, drawing upon an outstanding range of case opinions, including those from seminal cases as well those from recent and provocative disputes. The text uses a two-color design and includes a wonderful selection of photographs. Important documents useful to teaching particular cases and material are reproduced throughout. Property Law: Practice, Problems, and Perspectives is more than just a text. It incorporates a truly unique online simulation that features practice-ready materials and professionally-produced, author-scripted videos that illuminate property law issues and disputes. The text regularly references documents used in practice, which are available to students in the simulation. New to the Second Edition: Revised and updated case opinions and textual discussion. For example: The section addressing the Fair Housing Act now includes a discussion of disparate impact litigation after Texas Dept. of Housing and Community Affairs v. Inclusive Communities Project, Inc. The chapter devoted to takings law now includes summaries of Horne v. Dept. of Agriculture and Murr v. Wisconsin. New and sometimes startling images, such as a subdivision-marketing poster from San Diego in 1915 that offers a frightening example of pervasive discriminatory housing practices that existed prior to the Fair Housing Act. Enjoyable new problems drawn from reported case opinions. For example, the problem of “The Obstinate Ex,” involving a couple who live together in a home owned individually by one of them. When that person breaks off the relationship, the other refuses to move out, claiming an interest in the property. Professors and students will benefit from: A blend of property doctrine and real-world practice, featuring a stimulating, challenging presentation that is also transparent. The book retains the subtlety of the classic texts but comments explicitly on the overlapping elements to ensure that students can see all the connections among legal doctrines. A unique interactive element that teaches students how to read a land survey, helping them understand the issues presented by the text in case opinions and problems. The transactional perspective adopted by the authors in relevant chapters, such as real estate transactions and landlord/tenant law. A unique border along the edge of the text in the chapter on the real property transaction, allowing students to place key concepts and doctrinal material in the context of phases of the transaction. A robust electronic version of the casebook, along with online videos and practice-ready materials. A book that is the ideal text for a four-unit course, but includes ample coverage permitting a professor to construct a five- or six-unit course.

Environmental Law: A Conceptual and Pragmatic Approach, Second Edition, uses illustrative cases and statutory provisions to offer a structured treatment of federal environmental law. It focuses on the core concepts and practical questions that those practicing in the field confront on a daily basis and provides students with the knowledge of the basic policy choices available while explaining the practical difficulties regulators and courts face in implementing the law. Kirsten H. Engle joins the author team for the Second Edition, which has been expanded to include various strategies for addressing climate disruption. The new edition also includes a new chapter on ecological restoration and has been updated throughout. This compact and accessible casebook: Highlights the concepts that will enable students to understand almost any part of any statutory scheme as well as to understand the statutes' basic goals. Facilitates a concrete understanding of the field and the overarching framework that will aid students in making sense of the details. Takes a more focused approach than other texts, teaching about the various ways of setting environmental goals, dealing with costs and feasibility of controls, economic incentives, traditional means of regulation, and defining the roles of federal and state governments in setting requirements. Is organized around the following key questions, rather than statute by statute: How do we establish environmental goals? What means do we use to achieve these goals? How should responsibility for cleanup and cleanup decisions be allocated? How should we enforce environmental law? Features a current unresolved environmental issue, that of how to address climate disruption, as an example that runs throughout the book to assist students in understanding how the concepts and law they are learning apply to a new issue. The Second Edition offers: Discussion of a new environmental issue--various strategies to address climate disruption--that runs through the book. New material on the concept of restoration, which is becoming a central part of environmental law as we address already degraded ecosystems and adapt to climate disruption. Selected new cases and discussion of new cases in the notes and questions, emphasizing cases that help explain the book's core concepts or that significantly changed the law.

Abenteuer Freiheit

Ein Wegweiser für unsichere Zeiten

Author: Carlo Strenger

Publisher: Suhrkamp Verlag

ISBN: 3518745220

Category: Political Science

Page: 100

View: 8879

Nachdem Carlo Strenger in »Zivilisierte Verachtung« gezeigt hat, weshalb es westlichen Gesellschaften heute oft schwerfällt, ihre Werte selbstbewusst zu verteidigen, wendet er sich in seinem neuen Buch der individuellen Seite dieser Verunsicherung zu: Warum leiden so viele Menschen unter Depressionen und einer erdrückenden Angst vor dem Scheitern? Warum boomen Heilslehren, die uns den Weg zum wahren Selbst weisen wollen? All das hat laut Strenger, damit zu tun, dass es sich bei der Idee, es gäbe so etwas wie ein Grundrecht auf müheloses Glück, um einen Mythos handelt. Ausgehend von Denkern wie Spinoza, Nietzsche und Freud legt er dar, dass lange die Überzeugung vorherrschte, Konflikte und Scheitern gehörten zur menschlichen Natur. Daher, so schließt er aus den Biografien von Künstlern wie James Joyce, Pablo Picasso und Francis Ford Coppola, müssen wir wieder lernen, dass Freiheit ein lebenslanges Abenteuer ist: riskant, aber zugleich viel interessanter, als und die Massenkultur heute weismachen will.
