About the Author:

Anthony C. Fisher, Professor of Agricultural and Resource Economics, University of California, Berkeley, US

Review:

`Both students of environmental science and economics, and practitioners will find much of interest.' -- Aslib Book Guide `. . . the survey articles, deploy not merely technical expertise but also a very scholarly knowledge of previous related literature, a common-sense appreciation of the relationship between a theory and real-world environmental problems, and a willingness to provide intuitive explanations of the argument and the conclusions whenever these are appropriate.' -- Wilfred Beckerman, The Economic Journal `This is a superb book that brings together papers from the career of a really excellent economist. Fisher models interesting problems in novel ways and writes up his findings well. This volume deserves to be read: what greater praise could a book be given?' -- Anthony G. Heyes, The Journal of Energy Literature `Fisher has played, and still plays, a significant role in the environmental economics debate on natural resources and the economic value of reources. Therefore the reprinting of 24 of his most relevant articles should be welcomed. It should be read by all environmental scientists dealing with these types of problems.' -- Jan Van der Straaten, Environmental Politics `This collection of papers makes a valuable addition to one's library. The writing is succint, sticking to the substance of the economic issues. The economic models are well designed to meet their needs, neither skirting mathematical complexities where necessary for gaining purchase on slippery issues, nor pursuing mathematical models for their own sake. Insight, not generality, appears to be the advantage sought. One can get a sense of Fisher the economist, confronting economic problems and looking for the tools to solve them.' -- Kenneth E. McConnell, Journal of Agricultural Economics `Here is a collection of the writings of this acclaimed environmental economist, whose work combines relevance with intellectual rigor.' -- Business Horizons `Tony Fisher's very productive career vividly shows that neoclassical economic thought can be an asset rather than a hindrance to getting people to treat the natural environment as if it were an object of moral concern.' -- Thomas D. Crocker, Environmental Values `. . . a fundamental text for any devout resource or environmental economist.' -- Wendy Kenyon, Environmental Politics
