Featured Resource List

 

 

Fred Bosselman, Jacqueline Weaver, ... [et al.]

Energy, economics, and the environment: cases and materials.  2d ed.  Foundation Press [St. Paul, Minn.] : Thomson/West, 2006.

 

KF2120.A7B67 2006

 

The first edition of this title was published in 2000 to meet the need for a casebook on energy, economics, and the environment in a new century and was very well received.  This edition “builds on that effort, with a particular emphasis on recent issues such as increased attention to the environmental concerns surrounding the use of energy resources and energy reliability” (Preface of second edition).

 

This text is organized roughly chronologically, according to the periods in history within which the issues arose. Economic and environmental issues are integrated with energy resource issues: energy policy, energy in nature, the concept of a public utility, water power, coal, oil, natural gas regulation before 1985, rate regulation, competitive markets in natural gas, introduction to electricity, wholesale electric power competition, stranded costs, retail competition in electric power, nuclear energy, energy in transportation, international petroleum, the climate change issue, and continuing issues in economic regulation.

 

 

 

The European journal of law reform.

Kluwer Law International, c1999-

 

K5.U747

 

The publisher of the European Journal of Law Reform intends to provide a forum for authoritative views on law reform in Europe and the World and a systematic review of major initiatives for reform of laws and legal practice.  This Journal will focus on reform of national law in Western industrialized States, mainly but not only in Europe, including the challenge of science, technology and socio-cultural change to established methods of creation, legislation, interpretation and adjudication of law; reform of the legal and regulatory environment in Central and Eastern Europe; reform of the legal system of the European Union; reform and development of (European private) international law and international procedural law; and, challenges in public international law and the international protection of human rights.
