Economics of the Environment: Selected Readings 6th edition, W. W. Norton & Company

The scope of the book is comprehensive and the list of authors is a veritable Who’s Who of economists working on environmental and natural resource issues. The articles are timely, with 60 percent published since 2000 and half published since 2005.
In order to make the book accessible to readers at all levels, the articles are not only original and well written — and meet the highest standards of economic scholarship — but also are non technical in their presentations. Hence, readers will find virtually no formal mathematics in any of the book’s 34 chapters throughout its 733 pages.
Through five previous editions, Economics of the Environmenthas served as a valuable supplement to environmental economics texts for students and as a stand-alone book of original readings from the frontiers of the scholarly literature for broader audiences. This sixth edition promises to do the same.
