May 30, 2013
About the Book:
In the groundbreaking Food, Agriculture, and Environmental Law, leading environmental legal scholars Mary Jane Angelo, Jason Czarnezki, and Bill Eubanks, along with five distinguished contributing authors, undertake an exploration of the challenging political and societal issues facing agricultural policy and modern food systems through the lens of environmental protection laws. Through this exploration, the authors seek to answer difficult questions about the need for new approaches to agricultural policy and environmental law to meet 21st century concerns surrounding climate change, sustainable agriculture, accessibility to healthy foods and the conservations of natural resources and ecosystem services. This is the first book to examine both the impact of agricultural policy on the environment and the influence of environmental law on food and agriculture.
Contributing authors include: Teresa Clemmer, Hannon Connor, John H. Davidson, George Kimbrell and J.B. Ruhl.
