At the time of the 1972 Stockholm UN Conference on the Human Environment, the concept of sustainable development and the subject of international environmental law were virtually unknown. Since then, the importance of the subject has burgeoned, as has the number and complexity of the legal instruments that seek to address the threats posed to the planet by humankind. Deforestation, marine pollution, climate change, loss of biodiversity and similar concerns are now familiar - and still unresolved - problems. Together with an original introduction by the editor, this volume collects together for the first time a selection of key articles on the seminal issues of sustainable development and international environmental law, providing the reader with a solid understanding of the breadth and texture of the legal issues involved.

'David Freestone has compiled a first-rate collection of classic essays that probe the profound effects that two ideas - "sustainable development" and "international environmental law" - have had upon the field of international law over the past forty years. This compendium serves as a timely reminder of our past, as we look to solve some of the most critical problems of our future.' -- Sean D. Murphy, George Washington University, US and U.N. International Law Commission 'This is a thoughtful and inspiring collection, edited by one of the most respected and distinguished global experts of our field. The volume assembles some of the most important contributions to our world's understanding of how international environmental law can foster sustainable development. As we search for ways that law and governance can contribute to this crucial agenda, this volume of seminal environmental law perspectives provides an extremely rich resource for scholars, jurists, and beyond.' -- Marie-Claire Cordonier Segger, Centre for International Sustainable Development Law and the University of Cambridge, UK
