Summary

This book examines the major techniques used in cost-benefit analysis and project appraisal to value environmental goods and services. The authors, both environmental economists at the U. of Newcastle-upon- Tyne, UK, begin with description of various theoretical approaches including both revealed and expressed preference techniques. They then analyze case studies connected with recreation, landscape, biodiversity, water quality, amenity values. A concluding section contains discussion of contemporary issues, policy implications, and suggestions for future research. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
