'Maddison makes a case for focusing on the measurement of impacts on developing countries and bringing forward programmes for compensation and adaptation, rather than concentrating on emission abatement.'
'Interesting usage of economic valuation theories to determine the amenity values of climate in different sectors of the economy in different regions of the world... Packed with data and well referenced.'
