<p>China in recent years has embarked on an extraordinary turnaround, dispensing with revolutionary rhetoric in favor of a more pragmatic approach to contemporary problems. Two areas where this change has been most visible are environmental affairs and law. "Environmental Law and Policy in the People's Republic of China" is the first book-length treatment of the increasingly important connection between these two areas in China. It assembles in one place the major articles and documents on environmental law and policy, together with an introduction, commentaries, and bibliography. Of special importance are items in judicial practice which cover several major cases involving pollution, as well as a discussion of the various alternatives in resolving environmental disputes.
