The treatise contains an impressive amount of procedural and substantive authority. If you have just one federal case, you want to have this treatise. It will pay for itself in terms of time, research, and strategy. Even if you only practice state law, you will find a lot of useful information in this treatise, because many state rules and procedures are based on federal law.
Nicholas C. Zales, Marquette , operates Zales Law Office, Milwaukee, focusing on business litigation and appeals. He is a member of the State Bar Communications Committee. The people described in Banning DDT decided to act against entrenched scientific expertise and won.
DDT was a wonder chemical. Scientists endorsed it. It seemed the only way to delay the onslaught of Dutch Elm disease, which was destroying a popular type of tree that grew beautifully on city boulevards. But when homeowners found buckets of dead songbirds after spray trucks went by, they began to complain. Local governments disregarded them. Similarly, the expert opinions of state government agencies and University of Wisconsin academic departments varied.
Left with few allies, Wisconsin residents organized. They built a network of activists and scientists. The book does not go in pure chronological order nor does it provide in-depth coverage of the scientific or administrative law aspects of the successful effort to ban DDT in Wisconsin. It can be difficult to know when we are in the story. Instead, this history presents an impressionistic view. The story moves forward in mini-biographies of ordinary, concerned Wisconsinites who built the groundswell for banning DDT. We meet these people, and they become flesh-and-blood actors who are transformed.
The reader feels like he or she is experiencing current events. Written for a general audience, this book can be read quickly. The author describes how evidence concerning the adverse environmental effects of DDT was gradually built up from various sources. People of diverse conservation interests found common ground. The radical Environmental Defense Fund took the case to administrative hearing before the Department of Natural Resources.
Extensive interviews with the participants and use of contemporary newspaper articles bring the issues to life 45 years later. For the author, this story may be a wistful reminder of when Wisconsin led the nation.

It set the model for future efforts seeking regulation or limitation of other chemicals or practices. This book is a case study for environmental activism.
