This two volume collection of pioneering material includes landmarks and significant contributions to the subjects of global environmental issues. The editors have prepared a new introduction for this authoritative collection.

This collection enables the reader, whether an economist or environmentalist, to have access to material published in a wide range of journals, many of which are relatively unavailable. It will be of considerable value to researchers and teachers in all of the disciplines, including: theoretical ecology; resource and environmental economics; industrial ecology and environmental science.

65 articles, dating from 1945 to 1997
Contributors include: R.C. d’Arge, H.E. Daly, P.S. Dasgupta, A.V. Kneese, W.D. Nordhaus, R.M. Solow, J.E. Stiglitz
