2016 is a momentous year for EEP as we celebrate 30 years of independent, academic publishing. In 1986 our Chairman, Edward Elgar, founded the company with the vision of creating a publishing house that attracted high quality books by offering a superior service to authors.
Edward Elgar Publishing was conceived as an international scholarly press and from the beginning our sales were derived equally from Europe, North America and Asia Pacific regions, reflecting our author base and focus on topics of global interest. Today the Middle East, Latin America and a number of African countries are also important markets.
We are proud to introduce this landmark reference work, developed in association with the IUCN Academy of Environmental Law.
The Elgar Encyclopedia of Environmental Law is authored by international experts and provides definitive and comprehensive coverage of the field. Available as an integrated, state-of-the-art online resource, that features a specially-designed interface, powerful search, and direct linking to references. The Encyclopedia will also be available as 12 print volumes.
The Encyclopedia of Private International Law quite simply represents the definitive reference work in the field.
Consisting of four volumes, this Encyclopedia brings together 194 authors from 57 countries and sheds light on the current state of Private International Law around the globe. This major work provides unique insights into the discipline and how it is affected by globalization and increased regional integration.
