Economic Rights and Environmental Wrongs

Property Rights for the Common Good

by Rose Anne Devlin, R. Quentin Grafton

The crisis of environmental degradation has created an immense volume of literature which focuses on controlling environmental problems. This book goes a step further, in aiming to extend and complement the current debates on the subject. Using property rights, it examines the cause and possible solutions to environmental and resource degradation. Written in a non-technical and reader-friendly style, the book also offers numerous examples and case studies; an up-to-date list of world-wide web sites relevant to the subject; a glossary of environmental and economic terms; and a guide to to relevant literature at the end of each chapter. The book is intended to function as a valuable supplementary text for undergraduate students studying environmental and natural resource management, environmental studies, ecology, environmental science, environmental economics, agricultrual economics and geography.
