This book is the premier introductory environmental economics text for non-majors. Key chapters are extracted from the author's longer book, Environmental and Natural Resource Economics , the best-selling text in the field. This compact text provides a concise introduction to economic theory, then moves on to policy-based chapters. Each policy chapter discusses relevant environmental and political background, and then applies the critical economic concepts to real-world examples. By including both basic theory and in-depth, issues-based applications, this book is ideal for a wide range of courses in environmental and natural resource economics.


  • Clear, concise introduction to basic economic theory, and application of theory to current policy issues.
  • Well-developed coverage of both environmental and natural resource economics.
  • Interdisciplinary perspective that emphasizes public policy and draws on the natural and physical sciences, literature, history, and political science.
