Tulane Law Professor Oliver Houck’s book Taking Back Eden has been published in Chinese by Peking University Press, thanks to the efforts of Tulane LLM graduate Mingqing You (LLM ’05), now with Wuhan University and a regular reporter of recent developments in his country.

Professor Oliver Houck

Taking Back Eden (Island Press, 2010) tells the stories of eight cases around the globe that jump-started judicial attention to environmental protection in their host countries. Beginning with Storm King Mountain in the United States, the book moves to Japan, Canada, India, Russia, the Philippines, Greece and finally Chile, presenting a mosaic of citizen action and the judicial role. 

China is experimenting with several forms of citizen action in environmental protection, including judicial review, and it is hoped that Houck’s book and its examples will assist in the development and wise use of this approach.
