Is it possible to maintain sustainable development? What sacrifices do developing countries make in their environment to progress in their economic advancement? This work is comprehensive in its survey of environmental economics. Bridging the gap between theory and application, the authors explore many issues including evaluating environmental damage and benefits, population growth and resources scarcity, income distribution and poverty, acid rain and the greenhouse effect, and world markets and natural resource degradation.

Review:


"World Without End is a text for the times, providing between two covers a comprehensive guide to sound development policy integrating social and environmental concerns. It is also to be commended for the way that it blends theory with practical examples and an impressive collection of data from across the world...A valuable reference work."--Development Bulletin


"This is an impressive volume, and one that would be a pleasure to use in the undergraduate classroom."--Journal of Economic Literature


"Over the last several years a number of books have been written on sustainable development, defined as 'development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.' This is the best of the lot....Offers a very rich menu of specific examples of how the rather abstract principles of sustainable development can be applied in the developing country context....accessible to a wide audience."--Choice


"Provides a lucid, synthetic overview of the basic macro- and micro-economic theory and assumptions underlying the notion of a sustainable global economy."--Tree


"This volume provides a good introduction to the insights of neo-classical environmental economics on the problems of the developing world....This is an informative and well-written volume"--James Meadowcroft, University of Sheffield, Times Higher Ed. Supplement
