EU Environmental Law and the Internal Market

This is a thought-provoking book in which Nicolas de Sadeleer succeeds in setting out and analyzing the relevant law on the environment and the internal market in a clear and accessible manner, while at the same time addressing difficult issues relating to conflict in implementation. This scholarly and comprehensive work not only identifies and addresses these issues at the heart of the EU, but also proposes solutions both legal and practical. Anne-Michelle Slater, Environmental Law Review
