"Robert Lee Aston's eight university degrees, earned over the course of more than 50 years, have given him an incredibly broad and deep background in both engineering and the law. His curriculum vitae is relevant because Environmental Law for Engineers and Geoscientists can benefit not only engineering and science students in need of some legal background, but also lawyers entering environmental law practice. With detailed explanations, background, and analysis, along with an abundance of citations of actual cases, Environmental Law for Engineers and Geoscientists covers as much as one could hope for in a single text on such a huge topic" -Civil Engineering, September 2002" Being an engineer whose major contact with the law has been as an expert witness I very much would have liked to have the opportunity of taking a course of this title, specially if taught by the author" -G. F. Bennett, Journal of Hazardous Material, Vol. 93, July 2002
