"Foundational Text" in Environmental Economics Released

After more than ten years in the making, Dan Phaneuf and his co-author Till Requate have published A Course in Environmental Economics: Theory, Policy and Practice, the first graduate-level textbook that integrates the empirics, theory and policy of this maturing field. "In our teaching, we saw a clear need for a textbook covering contemporary topics inclusive of the entire field of environmental economics," says Phaneuf.

Bromley and Hiedanpää on Environmental Heresies

Dan Bromley and co-author Juha Hiedanpää have published Environmental Heresies: The Quest for Reasonable. The book "motivates readers to shift environmental discourse from ideology and narrow disciplinary paradigms to a more direct focus on what to do, and treats action as the focal point of reason and knowledge," notes publisher Palgrave Macmillen. The 12-chapter book is available in hardcover and as an e-book.
