MEDIA REVIEWS
`With increasing focus on the negative impacts of climate change, this book addresses a gap in the field of energy and climate change economics by providing a comprehensive overview of the state of research in this area. Dividing the contents into seven distinct sections allows for easy navigation of the material and encompasses wide ranging topics from the markets for fossil fuels, to governance, to energy policy and implications.' -- The Energy Journal
`The book represents a masterpiece in the energy and environmental economics literature and will certainly find an important place as a reference for academic debate and analysis.' -- Edmar de Almeida, IAEE's Economics of Energy and Environmental Policy
`. . .The volume is useful for legal and policy professionals, academics or practitioners alike, as it contains many interesting contributions on the state-of-the-art research in the economics of climate change mitigation in the energy sector. The parts of the book discussing carbon mitigation, energy efficiency and renewable energy policies, and low-carbon growth provide policy useful and novel knowledge. Advanced students might also find considerable material in this book useful for their studies on energy and climate issues.' -- Y. Yamineva, Oil, Gas & Energy Law Intelligence

`Some of us have spent our professional lives on energy and climate change but any new researcher or policy maker must find it daunting to even approach the subject. If so, this encyclopedic Handbook provides a wonderful and necessary introduction. It is creative and up to date, yet also takes the reader by the hand and introduces one topic after another while providing much of the historical context that is so necessary to a deeper understanding.' -- Thomas Sterner, Environmental Defense Fund
