Established in 1990, the Yearbook of International Environmental Law has fast established itself as a vital source of information and analysis in an increasingly important legal field. For Volume 8 there are two new general editors - Jutta Brunnee (University of British Columbia, Canada) andEllen Hey (Erasmus University, Netherlands) - adding to the Yearbook's very 'international' feel. The contributors for this volume are drawn from experts across the world who, together with the new expert team of editors, have created the best source of information on world-wide events in this field. The article section contains top-quality essays on topical subjects; the year-in-review sectionoffers a round-up of legal developments in every part of the world. There is also a Bibliography and a newly reinstated book review section.
