The purpose of this collection of readings is to aid the student taking a course in environmental economics to place the issues in perspective. The text is designed for an undergraduate audience, and those readings that have appeared elsewhere have, with the permission of the holders of the copyright, been suitably abridged for this purpose. The book is designed to be used in conjunction with a conventional text on environmental economics or as an adjunct to a comprehensive series of lectures in environmental and natural resource economics.
