About this book


This volume examines legal matters regarding the prevention and fighting of historical pollution caused by industrial emissions. "Historical Pollution" refers to the long-term or delayed onset effects of environmental crimes such as groundwater or soil pollution. 

Historical Pollution presents and compares national legal approaches, including the most interesting and effective mechanisms for managing environmental problems in relation with historical pollution. It features interdisciplinary and international comparisons of traditional and alternative justice mechanisms.
