Robert N. Stavins has been one of the most influential voices in
environmental economics and policy over the past two decades. The
26 essays in this book, written by Professor Stavins and his co-authors
over the period 2000–2011, originally appeared in a diverse set of
leading, scholarly periodicals, and are collected here for the first time.

This book is divided into seven parts: overview; methods of
environmental policy analysis; economic analysis of environmental
policy instruments; economics and technical change; natural resource
economics – land and water; domestic climate change policy; and
international climate change policy. The book begins with an
introductory essay in which Stavins reflects on the professional path
that led to his research and writing and identifies common themes
that emerge from this period of research.

Students, scholars, practitioners and policymakers will find this
volume a valuable and very useful addition to their collection.
