This title was first published in 2000. Using the latest surveys and original data, this volume contrasts energy and environmental policies in Western and Eastern Europe. In doing so, it provides an overview of European environmental regulation as a whole and suggests how best developments in the mature market economies of the West may be adapted for the transition economies of the East.
'This is an interesting, timely, and well-written book…the book is particularly welcome as it draws on experiences from both Eastern and Western Europe, allowing comparisons across political and economic systems as well as over time.' The Journal of Energy and Development
