Overview

"This well-written book goes right to the jugular, presenting an integrated, coherent view of the 'trade and environment' issue. The authors, who are well known in the field, are right in not taking sides other than when opinions flow from logically consistent argument."—James Cassing, University of Pittsburgh

"This book provides a unified presentation of important themes relating to international trade and the environment. There is no team better qualified to write such a book, and there are no close substitutes to this book. Copeland and Taylor provide economic intuition where possible, and their mathematical derivations are detailed and easy to follow."—Larry Karp, University of California, Berkeley
