This insightful volume presents a multidisciplinary perspective on environmental planning. Drawing on the most important works in the environmental and social sciences, this collection places special emphasis on spatial dimensions and pure planning and covers such topics as: regulatory instruments and institutions; policy under bounded rationality; urban environmental planning; regulation of diffuse sources and land; location and trade and ex-post evaluation planning. In addition to many classic papers, the editor has included some recent surveys and papers which offer an original viewpoint. The book will be an essential source of reference for scholars and practitioners alike.
‘This volume combines the traditional classics in environmental and resource economics with more recent classics in ecological economics and related fields to define environmental planning in a modern light. It will help researchers judge for themselves how much the field has evolved over the past 40 years. Experts will benefit from having the many important works at their fingertips, while new scholars will benefit from having leading authorities in the field identify an excellent path toward understanding it.’
– Adam Rose, University of California, US

‘This unique collection of papers represents an excellent resource for both teachers and professionals in the environmental planning field.’
– R. Kerry Turner, University of East Anglia, UK
