'From the authors of the "bible" of applied welfare analysis we now have the definitive collection of the seminal papers in the field. This book is a highly valuable reference for economists and policy analysts with a serious interest in the theory and application of welfare analysis in all areas of economics and public policy.'- Catherine L. Kling, Iowa State University, US'In Applied Welfare Economics, the editors have done an outstanding job in putting together classical work that covers the gamut of welfare economics. The topics covered are extraordinarily comprehensive, ranging from theoretical inquiry to policy issues that are of substantial contemporary interest. This work can serve as a standard reference source for researchers, as well a primary or supplemental text for use in graduate courses that focus on issues related to welfare economics. I would highly recommend it for the reader concerned with theoretical and/or methodological issues in applied welfare economics.'- Ronald Cummings, Georgia State University, US
