Taking as its starting point the interdependence of the economy and
the natural environment, this book provides a comprehensive
introduction to the emerging field of ecological economics. The
authors, who have written extensively on the economics of
sustainability, build on insights from both mainstream economics
and ecological sciences. Part I explores the interdependence of the
modern economy and its environment, while Part II focuses mainly on
the economy and on economics. Part III looks at how national
governments set policy targets and the instruments used to pursue
those targets. Part IV examines international trade and
institutions, and two major global threats to sustainability -
climate change and biodiversity loss. Assuming no prior knowledge
of economics, this textbook is well suited for use on
interdisciplinary environmental science and management courses. It
has extensive student-friendly features including discussion
questions and exercises, keyword highlighting, real-world
illustrations, further reading and website addresses.
