This unique collection of Clem Tisdell’s articles is an eminently readable and comprehensive economic analysis of important contemporary issues involving ecological and environmental economics.

Coverage includes the role of ecological economics in the modern world, welfare and ethical considerations in environmental economics, sustainability concerns, the potential role of local communities in conservation, environmental aspects of population growth, and the relevance of carrying capacity concepts. The value for environmental management of different types of governance and of alternative economic policy instruments (such as environmental taxation compared to tradable permits) is also assessed.

Ecological, environmental, natural resource, geographical and development economists will all find this book of great interest and value, as will policymakers in this area.
