'In Environmental Economics Alfred Endres provides a brilliant overview of available instruments and mechanisms of environmental policy and critically discusses those from an economic perspective. A must for everyone interested in increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of environmental policy instruments!' Michael G. Faure, University of Maastricht and Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands
'This unique textbook, based on basic economic theory, not only opens the door to the research frontiers of environmental economics, but also guides us to the field of environmental policy applications. Readers will surely be excited by studying how an economic theory can be applied to an analysis of institutional policy tools for environmental protection, such as property rights or liability rules.' Eiji Hosoda, Keio University, Japan
'This elegantly written book on environmental economics not only summarizes existing knowledge, but also provides a fresh look at the subject with new interpretations. Many exercises and examples of European, U.S., and international policy issues illustrate the value of theory and make the policy debate come alive. Alfred Endres's style of presentation makes reading enjoyable and fun, not only for students and scholars in economics but for those in other disciplines as well.' Michael Finus, University of Exeter
'This is a wonderful textbook, combining the fundamentals of environmental economics with recent theoretical research, and applying it to the analysis of American and European environmental policy.' Nadezda Pakhomova, St Petersburg State University
'This textbook offers students with basic knowledge of (micro) economics a deep understanding of basic and topical environmental issues and research results in an easily digestible format. The nontechnical yet sound presentation of methodology and theoretical principles, the discussion of solution concepts, and applications to practical problems are in perfect balance. The author succeeds in conveying his profound knowledge and insights in a stimulating way garnished with a pinch of humor.' Rudiger Pethig, University of Siegen
'In this textbook Alfred Endres uses microeconomic methods to investigate environmental policy and pollution. It is a brilliantly written book, in which the latest theoretical and empirical research is considered. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in these environmental questions.' Friedrich Schneider, Johannes Kepler University of Linz
