Editorial Reviews

J. C. Stachacz
The editors claim this is the first dictionary specializing in environmental economics. Of the few glossaries available, none has the detail and comprehensiveness of this work. It includes more than 1, 000 entries on resource management, instruments for policy making, environmental management, sustainable development, and natural resource accounting. The entries, concise and fairly technical, include charts, graphs, and formulas where appropriate and are extensively cross-referenced. An excellent source bibliography is included. This dictionary will be of great use to libraries supporting environmental studies, economics, and business curricula. Highly recommended for upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, and professionals. All academic libraries.
