! Though it provides short descriptive analyses of most of the fundamental topics, [the book's] value lies more in demonstrating these topics in case studies, which are drawn from the US, India, and elsewhere. Additionally, the work introduces many new and often advanced methods and materials that explore, for example, topics in risk, economics, policy, and sustainability. Even experts in the field may be captivated by some of these new ideas. ! the material is well organized with minimal overlap. Summing Up: Highly recommended. --CHOICE, January 2011 This book provides an invaluable and timely contribution to the urgent environmental challenges facing our society today.
