Summary
Canadian environmental lawyer Boyd describes the emergence and evolution of a new human right, surveys the constitutional right to a healthy environment in several places, and evaluates the impacts of environmental provisions in constitutions. Among his topics are framing the issues, the influence of international law in national constitutions, Latin America and the Caribbean Sea, Africa, Eastern Europe, practical experiences with the right to a healthy environment, and whether environmental provisions in constitutions influence environmental performance. Distributed in the US by University of Washington Press, and in Canada by the University of Toronto Press. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
