The Survey of Ecological Economics / Edition 1

<p>The emergent discipline of ecological economics is based on the idea that the world's economies are a function of the earth's ecosystems - an idea that radically reverses the world view of neoclassical economics. A Survey of Ecological Economics provides the first overview of this new field, and a comprehensive and systematic survey of its critical literature.<p>The editors of the volume summarize ninety-five seminal articles, selected through an exhaustive survey, that advance the field of ecological economics and represent the best thinking to date in the area. Each two-to three-page summary is far more comprehensive than a typical abstract, and presents both the topics covered in each paper and the most important arguments made about each topic. Sections cover: <ul> <li>historical perspective <li>definition, scope, and interdisciplinary issues <li>theoretical frameworks and techniques <li>energy and resource flow analysis <li>accounting and evaluation <li>North-South/international issues <li>ethical/social/institutional issues </ul> Each section is preceded by an introductory essay that outlines the current state of knowledge in the field and proposes a research agenda for the future.
