The most comprehensive, up-to-date guide to and analysis of the Clean Air Act (CAA) is now available from the Environmental Law Institute.

In twenty detailed chapters, with more than twenty thousand useful references, Professor Reitze provides a thorough, understandable guide to the legal, technical, scientific, and policy issues surrounding the CAA. No other book so thoroughly summarizes in one volume the complex yet vitally important maze of statutory provisions, regulations, and permitting requirements that characterize CAA implementation.

Review quote

"Professor Reitze's book is an extraordinary resource for Clean Air Act scholars and practitioners. The Clean Air Act equals (and perhaps surpasses) the Internal Revenue Code in complexity. Professor Reitze brings a much-needed measure of coherence to the tangled mass of statutes, rules, guidance and judicial decisions without wandering away from the actual state of the law. I am looking forward to using the book as the text for my class in the Law of Air Pollution Control. I commend Professor Reitze for yet another major contribution to environmental law scholarship."--Holland & Hart LLP, Climate Change Practice Team Leader "James A. Holtkamp "show more
