This up-to-date and well-informed book will appeal to policymakers in government as well as students, researchers and academics in environmental law and other academic disciplines.
‘Whilst green taxes face new challenges, there is now an accumulated international experience on which to reflect. This new collection of papers, providing material for further vigorous argument, evinces a keen appreciation of these realities. I recommend this generally very readable book as a helpful reflection of some recent key concerns in the environmental policy area. It constitutes a welcome addition to the literature, inviting critical responses from the specialist, but also drawing in the newcomer to the subject.’
– John Snape, University of Warwick, UK

‘The level of public and political debate on carbon taxes is low. Politicians fear the impact of a carbon tax on businesses and low income groups, as well as on their popularity among voters. This valuable book studies carbon taxes from many angles with ample attention paid to practical examples and shows that a smartly designed carbon tax is an indispensable instrument in the transition to a less carbon dependent economy.’
– Jonathan Verschuuren, Tilburg University, The Netherlands
