Protection of the environment we live in is a concern for all, not just regulators and lawmakers. In that spirit, Viale (educator in law and advisor to diplomatic missions) has written an accessible dictionary of environment-related definitions intended for NGOs, jurists, diplomats, students, environmental defendants, and others. Listed in both English and French, the lexicon provides definitions of environmental law terms, themes, and relevant documents. The writing is clear and definitions are precise, many of them from international organizations such as the UN, IAEA, FAO, and others. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

This Lexicon, aimed at NGOs, lawyers, diplomats and students, follows the same method as the Lexicon of Human Rights - Les définitions des droits de l'homme, published by Martinus Nijhoff Publishers in 2008. Definitions related to the environment are gathered by extracting them from relevant universal scope texts. This ordered grouping of definitions will enlighten the reader about the priorities of the international community regarding environmental law. Definitions are classified in alphabetical order, in separate English and French lists. In each language there is an alphabetical list of common terms with the equivalent second language term in square brackets. The list gives the exact detailed meaning followed by the source of each term. Following this list, a lexicon of the same terms is given under such general themes as "Mammals", "Gas", "Lead". Finally, a list of relevant documents which can be referenced for further information is included.
