Book Description

This volume offers an objective view of some of the most critical issues in natural resources. Written in nontechnical language, it uses ideas drawn from economics to look at the issues, examine how government laws and policies have caused some of them arise, and to find ways in which problems can be lessened. Originally published in 1982, this is a valuable resource for students interested in environmental studies and public policy.
