About the Author

Edited by Jeroen C.J.M. van den Bergh, ICREA Professor, Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain and Professor of Environmental and Resource Economics, Free University, Amsterdam, The Netherlands


`This is a splendid book. . . It is the ideal book for the indolent PhD student and academic alike. For the former, with a little creative and judicious re-packaging, it will yield at least half of the literature review of any thesis; for the latter, it will provide near instant erudition in fields far removed from ones own speciality. . . Because of its encyclopaedic character, it also tells us something about our profession as a whole and how we work. . . a word of appreciation to the editor of this volume. All of the 79 articles were commissioned pieces, written by 92 authors, each reviewed by 2 anonymous reviewers, revised and re-submitted. Any reader who has edited a commissioned volume will appreciate the majesty and miraculous nature of this achievement.' -- Frank Convery, Environment and Resource Economics
`This is what it says, a handbook, something to be accessed for in-depth information on specific topics: and there can be no doubt that it is a good one . . . I certainly expect to use it as a basic source on numerous key and specialised topics for many years to come, and to refer others to it with confidence.' -- Colin Price, Environment and Planning B
`This handbook is the essential reference work in the field. Importantly, the material included is ecumenical in two senses. It is inclusive of authors and perspectives from Europe, North American and developing regions. Further, it gives serious attention to environmental macroeconomics and other key topics more commonly found in compendia on ecological economics. The integration of those topics with more traditional areas of environmental and resource economics is a most useful contribution to greater communication within the broader discipline. Coverage is comprehensive and at a level accessible to practitioners, researchers, and students. References at the end of each chapter constitute a bibliography that provides extensive direction to the foundational and emerging literature for each topic. Highly recommended for upper-division undergraduate through professional collections.' -- J.V. Hall, Choice
`The handbook is the most comprehensive summary of the theory and practice of environmental and resource economics produced to date. It blends the perspectives of experts from Europe, the US and developing economies on the field, what has been accomplished, and the research frontier ahead. Anyone who wants a thorough source book for accessing the multi-faceted components of this field should have this volume in his library.' -- V. Kerry Smith, Arizona State University, US
`An impressively comprehensive and informative overview of the field. This book is a must, both as a reference of enduring value and for the authoritative articles it provides.' -- William J. Baumol, New York University and Princeton University, US
