The Rule of Five, by Richard J. Lazarus

Staff Pick

Harvard Law School professor Richard Lazarus examines a single case in the Supreme Court and its consequential impact on environmental law, politics, and advocacy—and the future of our planet. Lazarus is a leading scholar of environmental law and an expert on the nation’s highest court. He also is a master storyteller, whose narrative relies on extensive interviews with justices, lawyers, and advocates and explains the unlikely chain of events that led to the seminal case known as Massachussetts v United States Environmental Protection Agency. The case was decided in 2007, but the story behind it remains as relevant as ever today.
