Routledge RFF Press 2014

New and Key Titles

Welcome to the 2014 Routledge RFF Press Catalog

RFF Press, an imprint of Routledge/Taylor & Francis, publishes pioneering research in environmental economics and natural resource policy.

RFF Press publications support the mission of Resources for the Future (RFF), a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization headquartered in Washington, D.C. RFF conducts independent research on environmental, energy, and natural resource issues and strives to improve environmental and natural resource policymaking worldwide. Since RFF's founding in 1952, the Press has developed a unique reputation for the rigor, balance, accessibility, and policy relevance of its publications.

Traditionally our program has focused on environmental economics and related policy studies however we are eager to move into new subject areas, including Natural Resource Management; Governance and Public Policy; and Environmental Law.

Our books are rigorously peer reviewed and developed for quality scholarship; fair and rigorous presentation of data and arguments; originality and contribution; accessibility; and relevance for an interdisciplinary, policy-oriented readership in academia, industry, and government.

Please browse our latest catalog – we hope you find some new titles of interest. If you would like to join the distinguished list of Routledge RFF Press authors, please contact us. We would be delighted to hear from you!

Best wishes,
