Designed to introduce government lawyers to opportunities and benefits related to the rapidly changing dynamics of emerging government-focused sustainability efforts at the state and local levels, the book is organized into three main issue areas:
- greening of governmental operations;
- employing land-use planning and community-development tools to create greener communities; and
- litigation issues surrounding the green movement.
Each chapter identifies legal tools to accomplish goals in a given topic area and identifies legal issues to accommodate new approaches and incorporate the use of emerging technology.

Hirokawa is an associate professor at Albany Law School, in New York, where he teaches property, land use, natural resources and environmental law.
