Synopsis : Given the number and scope of environmental problems we face today, everyone from high school students to policy makers to concerned citizens should understand how the economy works and grasp how meltdowns-both economic and environmental in nature-can be avoided. Environmental and Natural Resource Economics: An Encyclopedia offers the critical information needed to comprehend these complex issues. The entries cover topics in a manner parallel to how environmental economics is commonly taught, addressing basic concepts, environmental policy, natural resource economics, market failure, exhaustible and renewable resources, benefit-cost analysis, and applied welfare economics. Additionally, the book includes entries on key concepts of economics, movements, events, organizations, important individuals, and research areas relevant to the study of environmental and natural resource economics. This work stands alone as the only title currently offering such a breadth of coverage and level of detail written specifically for readers without specialized knowledge of environmental economics.
Critique: "The entries in this book highlight areas where market-based economic models are inadequate and need to be supplemented to protect our natural resources. An introductory essay summarizes key economic concepts, environmental concerns, and some of the methods used to address these concerns. Entries related to basic economic concepts ... are well-written." - Booklist "[T]his title should serve as an important reference for students, researchers, policy makers, and interested individuals. Recommended." - Choice
