'Emission trading schemes have become instruments of choice in climate change policy across many jurisdictions, and this has led to massive experimentation across very different contexts. The scale and urgency of the climate change problem and the real-life complexity of emission trading schemes combine to make high quality, detailed studies necessary, important, and sometimes fascinating. This book scores on all these fronts. By putting practical implementations within a sound theoretical framework, it will be of value both for seasoned and not so seasoned scholars and policymakers.'

‘Policy makers in the relevant government bodies will undoubtedly consider this book essential reading, as will environmental lawyers of course, as well as technical consultants advising in this field. With its meticulous footnoting throughout, not to mention the detailed bibliography of over 20 pages, this book certainly emerges as a superb research tool for those seeking to enhance their understanding of this important environmental topic.’
– Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor, The Barrister Magazine
‘This book addresses a large number of important design variables and reflects deep knowledge of the EU experience. For those reasons alone, it merits a read.’
– David Driesen, Carbon and Climate Law Review
‘I found this book both informative and easy to read. This book would be of interest to academics wishing to gain an understanding of emissions trading policy issues for research or teaching purposes. In addition, academics from science and the environment in general would ﬁnd it a most useful tool to increasing the policy impacts of their research. I also believe it would be a great book to recommend to the current federal Government in Australia and most likely many others around the globe.’
