Charles D. Kolstad's Intermediate Environmental Economics, published by Oxford University Press, has established itself as one of the most authoritative texts on the subject. It differentiates itself from other books by assuming that readers already have an understanding of midway microeconomics. It focusses only on environmental economics - problems of pollution of the earth, air, and water - with prominence on regulation and private-sector anti-pollution incentives and coverage of international examples. The key features of this book include the following: an updated treatment of valuation, substantial revision and coverage of cost-benefit analysis, property rights, and market failure, resulting in greater clarity, new chapters on voluntary environmental protection and additional sections on discounting and dynamics, and increased attention to open access resources and fisheries.
