"Lawyers, Swamps, and Money" is an accessible, engaging guide to the complex set of laws governing America's wetlands. After explaining the importance of these critical natural areas, the book examines the evolution of federal law, principally the Clean Water Act, designed to protect them. Readers will explore topics including the fundamentals of administrative law; the geographic scope and activities covered by the Clean Water Act; the role of entrepreneurial wetland mitigation banking; and private property rights. The book concludes with insightful policy recommendations. A prominent legal scholar, Royal C. Gardner has a rare knack for describing landmark cases and key statutes with uncommon clarity and even humour. Students and professionals will gain the thorough understanding of administrative law needed to navigate wetlands policy - and they may even enjoy it.
