Rather than focusing on national government policies as in most domestic and international analyses of environmental protection in one of the world's most polluted countries, Zylicz (Warsaw Ecological Economics Center, Warsaw U.) concentrates on the local level in researching sustainable development in post- Communist Poland, and redressing the asymmetry between the attention devoted to environmental disruption in Central and Eastern Europe and Poland's natural heritage that has been preserved. The author examines Poland's system of nature protection, tallies winners and losers in this system, and weighs valuation techniques. Tables present data on relevant factors such as Poland's resource use and pollution, Gross National Product, national parks, EcoFund expenditures, attitudes toward expanding a national park, and valuation of a cleaner Baltic Sea.
