`The books' comprehensive coverage of the latest developments in the field of environmental economics and its clear exposition make it a joy to read and a must for anyone interested in the field.' -- Werner Meissner and Birgitta Weitz, Kyklos `This book is very timely and relevant in the current atmosphere where regulators are trying to experiment with different policies in the domestic and in the global arena . . . this book makes an important contribution in the area of environmental economics. There is inadequate supply of good books that deal with the major issues in this field and this book tries to fill that gap. The chapters on stock pollutants and on international aspects, however, do extend our understanding of the subject and are very useful in the study of environmental problems.' -- Lata Gangadharan, Economic Record
