Environmental lawyer David Boyd has produced an impressive, accessibleoverview of the current state of environmental law and policy in Canada,framed as a call to action.. It is the first text in a decade to give the lay of the land on environmental policy in Canada and it does an impressive job.. This book is a strong primer on Canadian environmental policy and it would make an excellent text for undergraduate courses on the subject.(Alternatives Journal)
Unnatural Law is one of the most significant books on Canadian environmental law ever published, and it will likely become the standard reference work in this subject for the next decade.. Unnatural Law is a meticulously researched, informative and persuasive work. It combines careful attention to detail with an infallible eye for the big picture. The gift of this book is that whilst documenting a litany of failures, it also is forward-thinking and optimistic about how the system can adapt to changing demands and values. Unnatural Law sets a new standardfor scholarship on Canadian environmental law.(The Journal of Environmental Law and Practice)
The comprehensiveness of this book is mind-boggling.. this book presents a fantastic resource for all Canadians, including both battle-scarred environmental lawyers and those newly discovering the poor state of Canada's environmental laws and policies.(The Legal Eye)
David Boyd’s monumental work reveals the fatal weakness of the patchwork quilt of legislation that results because laws are invariably cobbled together when environmental crises are encountered rather than attempting to avoid such crises in advance.... He reminds us that as biological creatures, we require clean air, water, soil, energy, and biodiversity and once that is acknowledged, the path of legislation is obvious: to protect those needs for all life above anything else. That would be legislation for genuine sustainability."(Dr. David Suzuki) See all Product Description
