From the Internet's infrastructure to operating systems like GNU/Linux, the open source movement comprises some of the greatest accomplishments in computing over the past quarter century. Its story embraces technological advances, unprecedented global collaboration, and remarkable tools for facilitating distributed development. The evolution of the Internet enabled an enormous expansion of open development, allowing developers to exchange information and ideas without regard to constraints of space, time, or national boundary. The movement has had widespread impact on education and government, as well as historic, cultural, and commercial repercussions. Part I discusses key open source applications, platforms, and technologies used in open development. Part II explores social issues ranging from demographics and psychology to legal and economic matters. Part III discusses the Free Software Foundation, open source in the public sector (government and education), and future prospects.

The broad national coverage and array of topics in Natural Resources Law is of interest to readers across the country. Most cases are introduced with a photo or map of the place, along with a context-setting paragraph. The text conveys the drama behind resource disputes and policy and the love-of-place. Each group of cases--both foundational cases as well as new decisions--begins with a factually rich discussion problem tailored to the cases that follow. Many problems mirror traditional essay exam questions; others raise contemporary policy issues. This highly teachable book groups readings into discrete, assignment-sized chunks of 25-40 pages, allowing coverage of 2-4 cases or one problem during each class section. The main emphasis is on primary sources, and each chapter opens with relevant statutory and regulatory sections.

The Third Edition sees an expanded emphasis on energy, exploring the Deepwater Horizon disaster, fracking, renewable energy development on federal lands, and the Keystone XL Pipeline. Climate change is addressed in every chapter. More great problems appear alongside photographs and slides. New cases and notes examine Connecticut v. American Electric Powe r (climate change and nuisance law); Summers v. Earth Island Institute and Monstanto v. Geerston Seed Farms (standing); Carcieri v.
