The Economics of the Environment is a working collection of the leading papers in the field of environmental economics. It presents within the compass of a single volume the two central issues in environmental economics: the theory and practice of economic regulation and the valuation of environmental amenities. Wallace E. Oates has included both the classics, the seminal papers in the field, and some of the recent work that is making an important contribution to the economic analysis of environmental problems.

`Oates, a well-known environmental economist. . . . gathers together in this large volume 35 previously published classic articles in the fields of environmental economics. His choices are excellent. This book would be desirable for any library serving graduate programs in environmental economics.' -- T.H. Tietenberg, Choice `To scientists from related disciplines and economists, who wish to study environmental economics and the seminal papers in the field, this volume offers a competent selection of the most important writings on the subject.' -- Thomas Wagner, Kyklos `This volume of thirty-five collected papers on environmental economics has the advantage of being edited by Wallace Oates, an instrumental figure in the development of this sub-discipline since its emergence in the early 1970s, and thus eminently qualified for the task.' -- Julie Whittaker, The Manchester School
