The essays in this volume, written by practising and academic lawyers, address some of the most fundamental problems facing industrialists and environmentalists throughout the world. The essays review and analyse attempts being made in various countries to blend environmental protection withcontinued economic development. How does the recently-agreed GATT agreement influence international developments in environmental regulation? Is deregulation an answer? Will the polluter always have to pay and how are the costs to be equitably distributed throughout society? These are some of thefundamental questions posed and discussed by these searching and powerful essays.
Alan E. Boyle is Professor of Public International Law elect, Edinburgh University.

Editorial Reviews

`'Environmental Regulation and Economic Growth, fleshes out some of the key legal issues underpinning any future synthesis between economic growth and environmental protection...The book has two particular strengths. First, its blend of expertise and views of academics, practising lawyers,regulators, and figures in industry and commerce...And second, its constant drawing upon the interplay of international, Community and national law...a worthwhile contribution to the ever expanding literature on environmental law which, hopefully, will trigger further research on methods andprocesses best suited to realize sustainable growth.'E.J.I.L.
