Environmental Economics: A Critique of Benefit-Cost Analysis describes, in a non-technical, readily understandable way, why the practice of benefit-cost analysis in environmental settings is heavily biased against the environment. The book provides environmentalists with the tools necessary to show policy-makers that pursuing many policies with apparent costs greater than benefits are, in fact, welfare-enhancing.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Graves' economics book takes a critical look at the benefit-cost analysis of environmental issues. This well-written, teaching-style book has excellent coverage of the applicable theory and methodology, and serves as a good primer for advanced undergraduates and practitioners with some economics background. -- Robert A. Simons, Ph.D, Professor, Levin College of Urban Affairs, Cleveland State University
Philip Graves provides a lucid account of contemporary environmental economics that is not only interesting but also goes beyond the conventional wisdom on the subject. Therefore, both beginning students and seasoned researchers in the field will find this book to be of considerable value. -- Amitrajeet A. Batabyal, Arthur J. Gosnell Professor of Economics, Rochester Institute of Technology
