Richard Moules is a barrister at Landmark Chambers, specialising in public law and environmental cases. He is also a Fellow of Fitzwilliam College, University of Cambridge.
...the author has produced a fine book, which is extremely well
written, is comprehensive in its approach and covers the key areas
one would hope for in a specialist text of this nature. -- Paul
Stookes * Journal of Environmental Law, Volume 24, Issue 2 *
Richard Moules' book is a gold mine of information on a fascinating area of environmental law. The book is noteworthy for three main reasons. First, it does not assume any previous detailed knowledge of environmental or administrative law; where it is necessary for the development of a narrative the author provides all the necessary background material...The second noteworthy characteristic of the book is the emphasis on case law. There are approximately 1000 cases referred to (I didn't count them all but the Table of Cases runs over 14 pages) and to say that Moules has been exhaustive in his trawl for relevant cases is an understatement...What is perhaps surprising is the third noteworthy thing about this book. It is a very enjoyable read! While it is certainly not a book to be read in a single sitting it is much more than just a reference book for dipping in to. Moules traces a story about judicial review that is both fascinating and informative and has produced a book that will be a worthy addition to any environmental lawyer's bookshelf. -- Professor Lynda Warren * Environmental Liability, Volume 19, Issue 6 *
