Editorial Reviews

Eight countries are used as templates for an examination from an economic perspective of the environmental and resource problems in the Nordic and Baltic region. Specific environmental issues assessed include international environmental cooperation, political debates that affect policies, and the impact of international financial assistance. Chapters consider such topics as fish stocks, geothermal power, and desertification in Iceland and nuclear power, pollution, and restructuring in Lithuania.
