Planning and Environmental Protection by Chris Miller

Book Description

This collection of essays examines the roles which land use planning can play in the protection of the environment. The subjects covered range from traditional concerns like pollution,nuisance and contaminated land to biodiversity and the pursuit of sustainable development, which forms the defining element of current environmental policy across the European Community and in most other developed economies. Environmental assessment is discussed, along with the succession of public law actions (Twyford Down included) by environmental activists which were necessary to convince the English courts of the full implications (and the 'direct effect') of the EC Directive 85/337. The later chapters become progressively more concerned with the planning system as the forum of negotiation and more participatory approaches (as distinct from fiscal instruments and command and control regulation) to encouraging sustainability. The contributors represent a variety of academic disciplines (law, geography, planning, environmental management) offering complementary insights into the planner's role in allocating land uses so as to minimise waste generation and energy consumption as well as maximising local amenity.

Struggle to Save the Soviet Economy by Chris Miller Struggle to Save the Soviet Economy, Hardback (December 2016)

Why did the Soviet economy suddenly collapse in the late 1980s, only a few years after Mikhail Gorbachev came to power? In this groundbreaking study, Chris Miller shows that although Gorbachev and his allies sought to learn from China's economic reforms under Deng Xiaoping, their efforts to revitalize Soviet socialism proved much less successful.

Environmental Rights by Chris Miller Environmental Rights, Paperback (August 2014)

This volume offers perspectives on contemporary debates over rights and environmental issues, criticizing the traditional ecocentric formulation and the view that it is meaningful to speak of environmental rights as a sub-set of human rights.

War on Terror by Chris Miller War on Terror, Paperback (July 2009)

This book covers the many topics of 'the war on terror' from legal, philosophical, economic and historical perspectives. The dialogue form of the book (essay-response) allows a broad representation of views, covering the situation in the Middle East, national security, politics of intervention, human rights, torture and the motives of the Iraq War.
