Regulation, Enforcement and Governance in Environmental Law is an updated edition of Richard Macrory's most influential writings. Spanning his entire career, these are all works which have helped shape contemporary environmental law and policy. The book includes the full text of his 2006 Cabinet Office Review on Regulatory Sanctions, new chapters on the Climate Change Act 2008, the Environment Tribunal, and analysis of recent leading cases. The book is divided into five thematic sections: Regulatory reform, Institutional Reform and Change, the Dynamics of Environmental Law, the Courts and the Environment and Europe and the Environment. Reviews of the first edition: 'This book is surely destined to become a 'must read' for anyone (academic, practitioner or student) interested in the development of regulation, enforcement, and environmental governance.' P Bishop, IUCN Academy of Environmental Law Journal 'An excellent reference work on environmental law....an extremely important and valuable edition to the environmental lawyer's bookshelf.' C Abbot, Journal of Environmental Law 'It is a rare to find a volume which consumes one's attention for 765 pages - and rarer still that such a blockbuster be a law book...This book is not solely for environmental enthusiasts - it should be essential reading for anyone concerned with the institutional reform, transparency and accountability in the UK and EU.' C MacKenzie, Cambridge Law Journal
Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is increasingly viewed as one of the most significant ways of dealing with greenhouse gas emissions. Critical to realising its potential will be the design of effective legal regimes at national and international level that can handle the challenges raised but without stifling a new technology of potential great public benefit. These include: long-term liability for storage; regulation of transport; the treatment of stored carbon under emissions trading regimes; issues of property ownership; and, increasingly, the sensitivities of handling the public engagement and perception. Following its publication in 2011, Carbon Capture and Storage quickly became required reading for all those interested in, or engaged by, the need to implement regulatory approaches to CCS. The intervening years have seen significant developments globally. Earlier legislative models are now in force, providing important lessons for future legal design. Despite these developments, the growth of the technology has been slower in some jurisdictions than others. This timely new edition will update and critically assess these updates and provide context for the development of CCS in 2018 and beyond.
In 1839 forces of the British East India Company crossed the Indus to invade Afghanistan on the pretext of reinstating a former king Shah Soojah to his rightful throne. The reality was that this was another step in Britain's Great Game - Afghanistan would create a buffer to any potential Russian expansion towards India. This history traces the initial, campaign which would see the British easily occupy Kabul and the rebellion that two years later would see the British army humbled. Forced to negotiate a surrender the British fled Kabul en masse in the harsh Afghan winter. Decimated by Afghan guerilla attacks and by the harsh cold and a lack of food and supplies just one European - Dr Brydon would make it to the safety of Jalalabad five days later. This book goes on to trace the retribution attack on Kabul the following year, which destroyed the symbolic Mogul Bazaar before rapidly withdrawing and leaving Afghanistan in peace for nearly a generation.
Direct effect, consistent interpretation, and State liability are instruments developed by the Court of Justice of the European Union for national courts to remedy conflicts between national laws and EU environmental law (and may also be used in some jurisdictions to resolve national law and international law). This book looks at the 'remedial capacity' of these doctrines/tools from the perspective of the national court applying them. In short: What are the strengths, weaknesses, and unexplored opportunities at the grassroots level, and what can we learn from the comparative experiences in environmental law practice within Member States? The study reveals considerable differences in the way these doctrines are handled at the national level. And, it is clear that these differences go beyond the challenges facing newly joined Member States where the judiciary might be expected to still be learning its way with EU law. Even within long standing EU Members, there is by no means a consistency in approach. The judiciary that handles environmental cases has recently established an informal cooperative network to learn from each other. It may be some years away from a time when national courts are regularly referred to not only to decisions of the Court of Justice of the European Union, but also to cases from other EU national courts to assist them in their decision-making. But, if this study, which is first of its kind in this field, helps to stimulate that process, the handling of environmental law within the EU can only be improved.

At a time of profound change and rethinking, this book provides insights into how environmental law in the UK has developed into its current form, and considers challenges it will face in the future. Irresolute Clay is not a legal history or textbook, nor a conventional set of legal memoirs. Instead it offers a personal account of the inside stories as experienced by one of the key architects of contemporary environmental law. Taking a thematic approach, it charts fundamental tenets of the subject (such as environmental sanctions, the European dimension, developing the academic discipline of environmental law, and environmental courts and tribunals), from the beginnings of the modern environmental law era in the 1970s to the present day.
