Environmental Health Law: An Introduction

Environmental Health Law offers a compendium of the major US environmental laws as well as strategies, standards, and enforcement techniques by which American law protects our environment and our health. Written in accessible language for the non-lawyer, this important resource puts the focus on general concepts and demystifies the American legal system by explaining what a law consists of, who makes it, how it is made, and how it is enforced.

In this book, Russellyn Carruth and Bernard Goldstein—experts in the field of environmental health law—introduce the major environmental laws that govern air and water pollution; regulate the manufacturing, distribution, uses, and disposal of hazardous substances; protect workers and the workplace; and protect the safety of our drugs, food, and water. The book also addresses issues and controversies in environmental policy with an eye towards understanding future developments in the law.
