Toxic and Environmental Torts: Cases and Materials

Hardback
This completely new casebook provides an integrated approach to private and public law responses to toxic insults to individuals and to the environment. The principal competing casebook focuses on procedural issues, whereas this book focuses on the substance of toxics in a deep way, exploring--among other issues--the difficulties of employing various scientific methods to address the question of causation. This book carefully considers the role of public law, both in controlling risks and its interaction with private law.
