Contents Notes
Time, space, and ecological injury -- The implications of ecological injury for environmental protection law -- The challenges for U.S. lawmaking institutions and processes of environmental protection law -- Becoming environmental law -- Building a road : the 1970s -- Expanding the road : the 1980s -- Maintaining the road : the 1990s -- The emerging architecture of U.S. environmental law -- Changing conceptions of time and space redux : environmental law's future challenges -- Environmental law's second (and quite different) "republican moment" -- Conclusion : the graying of the green. "In The Making of Environmental Law, Richard J. Lazarus offers a new interpretation of the past three decades of this area of the law, examining the legal, political, cultural, and scientific factors that have shaped - and sometimes hindered - the creation of pollution controls and natural resource management laws. Lazarus is especially well equipped to tell this story, given his active involvement in many of the most significant moments in the history of environmental law - as a litigator for the Department of Justice's Environment and Natural Resources Division, an assistant to the solicitor general, and a member of the advisory boards of the Environmental Protection Agency, the World Wildlife Fund, and the Environmental Defense Fund."--Jacket.
