I was not crazy about this book, for its difficulty to skim. Key words and concepts are not specifically highlighted in the text in any obvious way, except making glossary words italicized, which makes them more difficult to spot that if they were bold or something, for the purposes of skimming and taking notes. It did have good summary's at the end of each chapter though, and there are a lot of good online resources for this book as well. I also liked the plethora of case studies that this book uses as examples.

Format: Hardcover
The book is hopelessly out of date. Although it carries a 2003 publication date, it still refers to the USSR and Czechoslovakia in the present tense. It consistently refers to studies done in the 1980s as recent and less than 25% of the examples, charts. etc. use data from 1990 or later. For example, only 5 out of 37 references in the chapter on Economic Justice are more recent than 1990, and the most recent is 1994. This is typical of just about every chapter. One gets the feeling that the publisher never reviewed this revided edition.

This is a really good book for people who are starting an environmental economics program. Its basic, but it provides good examples.
