Can economic growth be environmentally sustainable? This crucial question goes right to the heart of environmental economics and is a matter of increasing concern globally.
The first edition of this popular title was the first introductory textbook in environmental economics that truly attempted to integrate economics with not only the environment but also ecology. This new version builds and improves upon the popular formula with new material, new examples, new pedagogical features and new questions for discussion.
