One of the book's strengths is its comprehensive overview and comparison of Australian environmental impact assessment regimes. Further, much of the theory and development of practice of environmental impact assessment used in the book is drawn from international and interstate jurisdictions. The most interesting and substantial updates to the book relate to the long-awaited adoption of strategic environmental assessment into many Australian jurisdictions and the possibilities for the practice and theory of environmental impact assessment to be used in novel ways, particularly in the international realm... legal practitioners and students will find this edition more relevant and more useful than earlier versions. - Law Institute Journal of Victoria, August 2009 Reviews of previous editions: Except for a necessary update to ever-evolving administrative arrangements, this book remains a key text on the topic in Australia. It has the hallmarks of a guide, a handbook, a textbook and a manual. The price makes it accessible to a broad readership from undergraduate students to commencing practitioners in consulting firms, industry or government. ... In a material and mechanical way the authors achieve what they set out to do - illustrate the practice and provide a resource for anyone seeking detail on EIA. - Geographical Review, Vol 45 No 1, March 2007 This text can be considered well researched, informative and well-written. The strong point of this book lies in the delicate balance between theory and practice. Ultimately, EIA ought to be well received and useful to a broad audience. - Eingana, Vol 28 No 2, August 2005 Environmental Impact Assessment in Australia: Theory and Practice is a valuable reference book. It is comprehensive and logical in its handling of the subject matter, and is a very useful handbook for both new and experienced practitioners. The book should have wide appeal to environmental professionals wanting guidance in undertaking EIA in Australia as well as legal practitioners and professionsals engaged in environmentally-related discliplines. - Australian Journal of Environmental Management, Vol 12/2, June 2005
