9780321078131: Environmental Economics and Policy (3rd Edition)

This book is the premier introductory environmental economics text for non-majors. Key chapters are extracted from the author's longer book, Environmental and Natural Resource Economics, the best-selling text in the field. The result is a compact text that includes a concise introduction to economic theory, as well as a variety of policy-based chapters. Each policy chapter discusses relevant environmental and political background, and then applied the critical economic concepts to real-world examples. By including both basic theory and in-depth, issues-based application, the book is ideal for a wide range of courses in environmental and natural resource economics.
