"An important achievement. This is a carefully crafted textbook that should appeal to students from the natural sciences, as well as those from economics and other social sciences. The text covers a number of important topics that most texts neglect, including agricultural sustainability, the relationship between trade and the environment, and the role of local and national institutions in promoting environment-friendly development. The tone of the book is formal yet friendly, and the layout of text, tables, and figures is top notch. Each chapter includes numerous useful links to material on the worldwide web. This book should prove popular with students and instructors alike." -- Gerald Shively, Purdue University
"The perfect introductory text covering environmental and natural resource economics. The choice and sequence of topics is excellent and the authors have provided the right balance between the neoclassical and ecological approaches. It is a most appealing text." -- Steven Kemp, Curtin University, Australia
"The book is simply great! My students like it. It is really one of a kind and it fills an important need in the field. The book is very clear, very informative, flows very well, and indeed is written in a very interesting and readable style. The additional materials that come with the book are also very good. In short, job well done!" -- Rafael Reuveny, Indiana University
"The textbook continues to be very thorough in its coverage. My particular interest in the book is the way that it is even-handed in its treatment of environmental and ecological economics. The two chapters specifically devoted to the ecological economics are clear summaries and the ecological approach is brought in at regular intervals to demonstrate alternative types of analysis." -- Helen Mercer, University of Greenwich, UK
"A great book." -- Barry Shelley, Brandeis University; Oxfam America
"Although many students approach an environmental economics class with enthusiasm, some find that seeing things solely through a classical microeconomic lens doesn't capture the whole picture. Harris and Roach present the subject through the lens of ecological economics, an approach that offers a more natural way at looking at things like climate change or global water cycles." -- Reference & Research Book NewsReseña del editor:
