Providing a comprehensive legal overview of the past 200 years, this enlightening account exposes the laws and inadequate voluntary global governance that have triggered an eco-colonization—or ecocide—of the planet. Examining laws from around the world that have been successfully developed to curtail the power of environmentally oppressing institutions, this record analyzes the impact of corporate dominance and argues that duty of care is owed to the public and the wider earth community. This investigation will interest policy makers, business leaders, activists, and lawyers alike.
