T Daya-Winterbottom "Sustainable management, a sustainable ethic?" in RV Percival, J Lin and W Piermattei (eds) Global Environmental Law at a Crossroads (Edward Elgar 2014) Published by Edward Elgar the acclaimed independent international publisher and winner of the Frankfurt Book Fair Academic & Professional Publisher of the Year 2014 award

Reviews of this book include:

‘The normative and institutional distance travelled since UNCHE has been considerable. There have been notable successes, but more often than not environmental indicators continue to evince disturbing downward trends. This collection brings together cutting-edge scholarship designed to explore where we have been, where we are, and where we might be going – Global Environmental Law at a Crossroads. Contributors explore the continuing challenges we face, but they also look ably and deeply at the opportunities for improvement in governance that might address these challenges. For those concerned where we are headed, this will be a welcome addition to the library.’ – Donald K. Anton, The Australian National University College of Law

‘This is a remarkable publication wherein leading world’s environmentalists discuss in an informed and transparent manner the global, regional and national environmental challenges. The unique character of this book is that it links global issues of the environment (sustainable development; the creation of the World Environmental organization) with national issues such as the right of nature in Ecuador. The book also presents a critical overview of Rio+ 20 Conference. The particular feature of this outstanding book is its very analytical and straightforward approach to environmental issues adopted by its authors. Such a book is a must to all environmental lawyers, scholars and practitioners and in particular for a young generation of people who are interested in our planet.’ – Malgosia Fitzmaurice, Queen Mary University of London
