9780857935779: Dictionary of Environmental and Climate Change Law (Elgar Original Reference)

This state-of-the-art Dictionary defines terms employed in international agreements, national legislation and scholarly legal studies related to comparative and international environmental law and the emerging law of climate change. In acknowledgement of China's growing role in this arena, each term also includes its pinyin translation in order to facilitate access to the Mandarin variants.

The international community is developing increasingly complex environmental provisions and participating in a number of international treaties and agreements related to environmental law and regulation. The complicated and highly specific nature of environmental law has led to the development of localized terminology that is not easily understood outside its country of origin. Jointly prepared by scholars in China and the US, the Dictionary provides a linguistic bridge between English and Chinese speakers as well as an essential reference for those interpreting and applying international environmental law, multilateral environmental agreements, and domestic laws that implement these treaties.

Students, scholars and practitioners in the area of environmental law will find this groundbreaking Dictionary an invaluable addition to their libraries.

Review:

This dictionary's unique aspect is that the terms (but not he definitions) are translated into both Chinese characters and Mandarin Pinyin formats... The editors perform a valuable service by helping to diminish the confusion that inevitably arises when representatives of very different legal cultures must work together... Recommended. --T.H. Koenig, Choice

There seems to me to be a need for a reference source giving clear and accurate definitions for students of international law who need to know about climate change and the environment. This book can be recommended as a useful step in the right direction. --Martin Guba, Reference Reviews
