Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An introduction to the study of environmental and natural resource economics, designed to be accessible to students who have completed a two-semester introductory course in economics or a one-semester introductory microeconomics course. Treats intertemporal optimization within a discrete-time, mathematical programming framework, relegating mathematics beyond simple algebra to appendices, and includes exercises, answers, and discussion questions. This fourth edition continues the trend toward a more international focus, and adds a chapter on environmental justice. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
