Arnold Reitze
Release Date

The most comprehensive, up-to-date guide to and analysis of the Clean Air Act (CAA) is now available from the Environmental Law Institute. Authored by George Washington University Law School Prof. Arnold W. Reitze, Jr., one of the most noted authorities on the Act, this second edition of "Air Pollution Control Law" explains the legislative provisions, regulatory requirements, and court decisions that constitute the body of air pollution control law. In twenty detailed chapters, with more than twenty thousand useful references, Professor Reitze provides a thorough, understandable guide to the legal, technical, scientific, and policy issues surrounding the CAA.

No other book so thoroughly summarizes in one volume the complex yet vitally important maze of statutory provisions, regulations, and permitting requirements that characterize CAA implementation. The book includes completely up-to-date discussions of current controversial issues such as greenhouse gas controls, utility emission regulation, the "grandfathering" of existing facilities, and mobile source emissions. The book is designed and organized both to facilitate an understanding of the Act and its requirements and to provide guidance on methods of compliance and enforcement.
