'Professor Zhao's study offers a timely examination of China's environmental issues, and the legal and regulatory framework that has evolved in response to the environmental degradation accompanying China's rapid economic growth over the past few decades. The book is welcome and essential reading for all those interested in China's legal development in the post-Mao era, and all those concerned with the manner in which China is handling its serious environmental problems. Its detailed and comprehensive analysis is truly impressive, and the study will be highly significant in the years to come.' Michael Palmer, Emeritus Professor, Centre for Asian Legal Studies, SOAS University of London 'This superb book provides a comprehensive introduction to the field of Chinese environmental law. Professor Zhao masterfully guides the reader through the complex history and structure of environmental governance in China. The book thoroughly covers China's pollution control and environmental assessment laws and the processes for implementing and enforcing them. Anyone seeking to understand environmental law in the country with the greatest impact on the planet's health will benefit from reading this book.' Robert V. Percival, Robert F. Stanton Professor of Law, University of Maryland
