This book builds on Professor Reitze's earlier work, Air Pollution Control Law: Compliance and Enforcement, and provides expanded coverage of the control of air pollution from stationary sources. It includes updated information concerning the areas of air pollution law that have become more important since 2001, such as new source review, hazardous air pollutants, interstate air pollution control, preconstruction and operating permits, and enforcement issues. Whether you are new to environmental law or have considerable experience with the Act, you will find this book to be essential to fully deciphering, applying, and complying with the myriad aspects of air pollution control law. Corporate counsel, attorneys for regulated sources, federal, state, and local compliance officials and prosecutors, technical consultants, teachers of environmental law, students, legislators, and environmental policymakers will all benefit from Professor Reitze’s clear, extensive analysis.

Book Reviews

“Arnold Reitze has been recognized as a 'legend in the law' by his peers. He has taught (and mentored) legions of environmental lawyers who occupy leading positions in the government, public interest groups, corporate EHS departments, and the private bar. Aside from those he has trained, one of his lasting contributions will undoubtedly be this treatise, which is widely recognized as the definitive one volume source.”
