About the Author

Tom Tietenberg is the author or editor of eleven books (including Environmental and Natural Resource Economics, Eighth Edition, and Environmental Economics and Policy, Fifth Edition), as well as over one hundred articles and essays on environmental and natural resource economics. After receiving his PhD in economics from the University of Wisconsin at Madison in 1971, Tietenberg was elected President of the Association of Environmental and Natural Resource Economists (AERE) in 1987. He has consulted on environmental policy with the World Bank, the InterAmerican Development Bank, the Agency for International Development, and the Environmental Protection Agency, as well as several state and foreign governments. In 1992, Tietenberg spoke at the first Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and has lectured on sustainable development at many other conferences around the world. In 2006 he was designated one of six inaugural AERE Fellows. He is currently the Mitchell Family Economics Professor at Colby College, where his research focuses on the design and evaluation of economic incentive mechanisms for environmental protection and tradable permit systems for pollution control and fisheries management. Lynne Lewis is chair of the economics department at Bates College where she teaches microeconomics, environmental economics, natural resource economics, and valuation. Lewis received her Ph.D. in economics from the University of Colorado in 1994 after finishing a two-year dissertation fellowship at the Environmental and Societal Impacts Group at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Her dissertation received the Universities Council on Water Resources (UCOWR) Dissertation Award in 1995. Currently, she is working on a research grant focused on valuing the potential benefits from dam removals and river restoration. She has also worked extensively on the economics of transboundary water resources, tradable permits for pollution control and the valuation of environmental amenities and disamenities within watersheds and coastal zones. She currently serves on the Board of the Natural Resources Council of Maine, the Penobscot River Science Steering Committee, and the Advisory Board of Mitchell Center for Environment and Watershed Research. She received the Friend of UCOWR award in 2005.

Format: Paperback
This book's strength is that it covers many important topics in an accessible fashion. However, the 2004 copyright date is very misleading. Many parts of the text, examples, and references were current as of 1980, i.e., before the birth of most students who are using the book! The many precise dollar amounts of costs and benefits rarely indicate whether the reference is to, say, 1975 dollars or 1992 dollars. Throughout the book are phrases like "recently" and "now" that actually refer to developments decades ago.

The author is a respected scholar in the field. In my view he should be embarrassed to supply a "new" edition as hopelessly dated as this one. Readers can save money by buying a used copy of an older edition--they won't be missing much.

I bought it for school, and it was better than listening to my teacher, but it doesn't tell you what pages key words are found on and some of the information is very spaced out and hard to follow

this was a really good experience.... stress free purchase. I ordered on a Wednesday, and it arrived on a Friday, provided that I did order from an IN-State seller. there was no damage to the item; and the price of a new one was better than the used prices. I'm just happy I got such a good deal.
