The Fifth Edition of this best-selling text continues to thoroughly introduce students to the study of environmental and natural resource economics. In continuing the trend toward a more international focus, Tietenberg increases attention paid to environmental problems and policies in Eastern and Western Europe, China, and developing nations. In addition, an explicit integration of research and policy within each chapter connects actual examples to economic theory, providing students with the context in which to understand the material.
