  • Environment Vol. 1 book coverPublisher: Sage
  • First published: 2006
  • ISBN: 978-1-41291-842-8

This four-volume set (of 80 articles and 1470 pages) explores the locations where the environment matters most – such as where people are poor, where environments are under threat (such as on frontiers), where there are few natural resources remaining, and where industrialization is rampant. It also explores these concerns at different system levels, from local-community, to regional, national and global. It explores costs of damage to the very resources on which economies rely, and the values of environmental goods and services and the controversies surrounding such valuations.
