Two thirds of the essays in the new edition of this widely used collection of essays in environmental economics are new. They range from seminal articles on the cost and the benefits of environmental protection to the goals and the means of environmental policy. Topical pieces probe critical issues such as global climate change and ecological values. Environmental policy options are explored in depth and the fundamental principles for assessing their benefits and costs are developed and illustrated.
