Happy Thanksgiving to everybody, especially to my students in the midst of preparing for the upcoming final exams. Among the things that I am particularly grateful for this year is the work of my book co-authors who have helped push our comparative/global environmental law casebook within sight of completion. The book will be out next year and will offer law teachers, students, and practitioners with new materials, understandings, and approaches to a relatively new perspective on environmental law.
In the meantime, here is something else that I have also been working on — a draft chapter on China’s Cancer Villages, by myself and two of my former students, Quoc Nguyen and Linda Tsang. The chapter describes cancer cluster phenomena that have emerged all over China in the last 10-15 years: Tseming Yang, Quoc Nguyen, and Linda Tsang, China’s Cancer Villages (November 2, 2018). Forthcoming, The Cambridge Handbook on Environmental Justice and Sustainable Development, eds. Sumudu Atapattu, Carmen G. Gonzalez and Sara Seck. Available at SSRN: https://ssrn.com/abstract=3277638
