This book was excellent! He is saying here what I want to say but don't know how to... his work is the kind of thing that anyone should read... and it is my honest opinion that anyone who doesn't agree with this is simply missing the point: That our society can never be a utopia, which is what many people mistakenly believe... it just is not possible. Cosmic justice is a term that is synonymous with the theme of what it is to have a utopia.

This book has at least 3 levels: the story of egregious injustice to one man, less detailed accounts of many who suffered the same fate due to our past "crackdown" on criminality, and a narrative that explains the degree to which we shot ourselves in the foot on harsher sentences, ending up with an unsupportable prison population. It is confined mostly to case histories from Alabama, Mississippi, and Georgia although the data on the corrections overload spans the country. I had hoped that stories like this were a thing of the past but evidently not. This author is highly believable, both as a gut feeling and also due to his long background trying to serve people in the area who had received death sentences yet had no legal representation.

In the first few pages of Toxic Loopholes the author poses 2 questions he intends to answer: “How well are our major environmental laws working?” “What prevents them from achieving their stated goals?” This book provided insightful, provocative answers to both questions by examining the real life stories of communities across America trying to gain the assistance of the law and the EPA to clean up their land, air and water. Toxic Loopholes arrives at a perfect time in history. Although the media provides more environmental coverage than ever before, most people still believe we have effective laws and government agencies that will shield them from pollution. By using real life examples and powerful facts, Toxic Loopholes convinced me that this is simply not so. This is the only book I’m aware of that thoroughly de-mystifies the environmental protection process. It clearly explains the fatal flaws in our environmental laws and exposes the extreme malfeasance of agencies like the EPA that are supposed to enforce them. Toxic Loopholes is engaging but disturbing to read. It is full of fascinating stories with scoundrels and heroes. For example, it chronicled the courageous efforts of Robert Martin and Hugh Kaufman who used their position as EPA Ombudsman to expose the corrupt relationship between EPA bosses and corporate polluters, who were allowed to get away without cleaning up the communities they poisoned. It also revealed the vindictive response of successive EPA chiefs--like Christie Todd Whitman--who did everything in their power to silence, intimidate and eventually eliminate the Ombudsman’s office after Martin and Kaufman exposed her lie that the toxic air around ground zero was safe to breathe only 3 days after the twin towers collapsed. I was pleased that the book looked at both domestic and international efforts to protect the planet. The extensive chapter on the politics of climate change provided a comparison of several contending views on whether nations can cooperate to solve such global problems. Then it tested the validity of these views by examining two case studies: the successful ozone treaty and the floundering negotiations to prevent climate disruption. The author’s conclusions were both sobering and eye-opening. The careful research that went into Toxic Loopholes was informed by historical analysis, political theory, realpolitik, ecology, economic theory, and environmental ethics. In addition, it contained some clear-headed prescriptions for ecological improvement without pretending that our society can become ecologically sustainable unless it abandons the relentless pursuit profit and growth. This well researched text provides readers with a systematic analysis of the history, politics, failures and occasional triumphs of our environmental laws. His discussion about the necessity of preserving biodiversity, the importance of the precautionary principle and four theories framing the prospects for global environmental cooperation were alone worth reading the text.

This book attacks just about all legal issues and uses great examples. It also has a list of legal terms and definitions in the back. Once you buy the book you can get updates on law changes from their website. After purchasing my book I bought one as a gift for someone. Think I should get a commission as five other people I know have bought this book since. A lawyer recommended this book to me.

I heard something about this book from The Dave Ramsey Show. As they were talking about it, it sounded really good and it is. Dave Ramsey and Overstock are the best. Phyliss
