At first glance the striking cover and title of the book promise the reader a fresh focus on environmental law in South Africa, namely environmental compliance and enforcement. This is amplified by the foreword of Albie Sachs, who formed part of a group of farsighted people instrumental in the inclusion of an environmental right in the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa, 1996. The book focuses on the implementation of this environmental right, moving from the abstract to the practical realm of environmental law; ie, examining the domestic environmental compliance and enforcement system.
