    DescriptionThe fifth edition of Environmental Impact Assessment in Australia: Theory and Practice has been revised in the context of evolving EIA practice around Australia and introduces a number of case studies throughout the text to complementthe theory. The case studies demonstrate key points within the text and should not be viewed as the only way of doing EIA (or a component of EIA). Thomas's experience in the historical context and evolution of environmental impact assessment and the research in this area of EIA provided in previous editions largely remains, although updated where relevant. The fifth edition focus is on introducing more context to the evolving theory and practice regarding impact assessment, specifically strategic environmental assessment, sustainability assessment, the role of EIA in developing countries and the issues surrounding post EIA monitoring. Elliott's experience working in EIA for the State Government of Victoria over the past eight years has provided insight into how EIA is undertaken in practice. Reflected throughout this edition is this practical application - how good assessments can lead to better decisions as well as how politics plays an integral role in EIA. Additionally the Commonwealth, State and Territories EIA procedures, have been revised, as many of these jurisdictions have had their procedures reformed, including amendments to their EIA legislation, or to existing EIA Guidelines/administrative procedures. Notwithstanding these changes, the way in which EIA is undertaken still remains. That is, screening, scoping, EIS production, public review and Assessment.

It has the hallmarksof a guide, a handbook, a textbook and a manual. The price makes itaccessible to a broad readership from undergraduate students tocommencing practitioners in consulting firms, industry or government. aaC--|In a material and mechanical way the authors achieve what they set outto do aaC--" illustrate the practice and provide a resource for anyoneseeking detail on EIA.' Geographical Review, Vol 45 No 1, March 2007 'Thistext can be considered well researched, informative and well-written.The strong point of this book lies in the delicate balance betweentheory and practice. Ultimately, EIA ought to be well received anduseful to a broad audience.' Eingana, Vol 28 No 2, August 2005 'Environmental Impact Assessment in Australia: Theory and Practiceis a valuable reference book. It is comprehensive and logical in itshandling of the subject matter, and is a very useful handbook for bothnew and experienced practitioners.
