The Earth on Trial examines the degree to which the law has accommodated an increasing understanding of the natural environment. Paul Kibel provides a clear assessment of the conceptual and practical changes needed to reconcile law to the limits of ecology. Kibel discusses many international environmental issues including Canadian logging and international law, the legacy of environmental law after the collapse of the USSR, the poison gas leak in Bhopa, India, the refoliation of Vietnam's forests since the war and marine turtle protection. The book acknowledges that a healthy environmental future depends not so much on our ability to alter nature to accommodate society, but on our ability to alter society to accommodate nature.
Paul Stanton Kibel is an environmental lawyer based in San Francsico, and teaches at Golden Gate University School of Law and the Monterey Institute of International Studies. His articles have appeared in many publications, including In These Times, UCLA Journal of Environmental Law and Policy, NYU Environmental Law Journal, and Georgetown International Environmental Law Review.
