Description

This text is the premier introductory environmental economics text for non-majors. Policy-oriented coverage of environmental economics for majors and non-majors alike. Environmental Economics and Policy 6/e is a companion text to the larger Environmental and Natural Resource Economics 8/e. This smaller, paper-bound policy text is intended for a broader audience that includes political science, environmental studies, and agricultural programs. Environmental Economics and Policy provides a broad but nuanced introduction to the field of environmental economics. This text begins with an introduction to core concepts and theory, followed by a series of policy chapters that are self-contained, allowing for a great degree of flexibility in course design. Boxes throughout the text introduce a large number of real-world examples and ongoing policy debates in order to bring new perspective to the issues being discussed. The sixth edition features new co-author Lynne Lewis from Bates College, a new chapter on land, more coverage on the use of GIS in both analysis and policy, and updates on topics such as climate, water pollution, transportation, and energy.
