By Alex B
Format:Paperback
Pearson is a long-established leader of world-class, dynamic, easy-to-read textbooks and Natural Resource and Environmental Economics is no exception. In its fourth edition, this textbook bears an impressive appearance: a picturesque woodland covers a massive 700 page turquoise textbook. Environment economics is no easy discipline to explain, requiring the ultimate combination of strong qualitative exposition with natural intuition, but this textbook somehow manages to achieve that perfect mix of plenty of diagrams, real-world examples and worked-through mathematical examples.

Part I, entitled 'Foundations', is very much that. Interestingly for an economics textbook, it is history and intuition that lays the foundations rather than mathematical rigour. Anyway, the introduction is gentle and thought-provoking as a way to motivate the student into the contemporary issues of sustainability, inequality, environmental ethics and so on. The final chapter of this part gets a bit more formal with an introduction to welfare economics, and just when you though you could escape the maths for a while longer, formal notation is applied to unpick problems in the interaction between welfare and the environment.

Part II, entitled 'Environmental pollution', is a tricky section containing the bulk of environmental theory. If one can master the six chapter here then one has reached a very high level of engagement in environmental economics and the surrounding issues. Much ink is spilt on pollution targets and control, but the exposition is well balanced between diagrams, intuition and mathematical analysis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Natural Resource and Environmental Economics 14 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback
This is a very senior book for Masters degree level. It is mandatory for the MSc Economics course that I am doing so it is an absolute must have. It contains vital information with mathematical application as well. Absolutely necessary for some modules at Masters Environmental Economics level.

I bought this book in the last week and i was shocked to find that all the pages are stuck together at the top of the book and therefore the pages arent accessible without having to rip it open.
