This unique graduate textbook offers a compelling narrative of the growing field of environmental economics that integrates theory, policy, and empirical topics. Daniel J. Phaneuf and Till Requate present both traditional and emerging perspectives, incorporating cutting-edge research in a way that allows students to easily identify connections and common themes. Their comprehensive approach gives instructors the flexibility to cover a range of topics, including important issues - such as tax interaction, environmental liability rules, modern treatments of incomplete information, technology adoption and innovation, and international environmental problems - that are not discussed in other graduate-levels texts. Numerous data-based examples and end-of-chapter exercises show students how theoretical and applied research findings are complementary, and will enable them to develop skills and interests in all areas of the field. Additional data sets and exercises can be accessed online, providing ample opportunity for practice. For more information, visit the book's website at http://phaneuf-requate.com/.

In The Press

'Mature fields in economics have a foundational text that frames graduate students' understanding of what has been established and where new research is needed. With Phaneuf and Requate's new text, environmental economics has its foundational text! This is the first text that spans the full domain of modern research and practice in environmental economics. The authors have succeeded in defining how the field will be perceived by all economists and perhaps more importantly how the next generation of environmental economists can advance it.' V. Kerry Smith, Emeritus Regents Professor, Arizona State University, Tempe
