Researchers and students concerned with the environment and who wish to examine all the relevant literature on a particular subject can experience considerable difficulty in obtaining access to the wide range of journals in which a large proportion of the important articles appear. This major new series reproduces the most important articles across the entire range of environmental economics and management, including material originally published in journals specializing in economics, political science, sociology, regional science, geography, urban planning etc. Each volume is prepared by specialists in the field under the direction of the series editors Kenneth Button and Peter Nijkamp. Each authoritative selection presents the student and researcher with the most important articles on any one theme or subject. New introductions by the individual editors - many of whom are world famous - provide an authoritative survey of a major branch of research on the environment. In addition, the pagination of the original articles has been deliberately retained in these volumes to facilitate ease of reference. These features combine to make the series an essential reference source.
