Natural Resource And Environmental Policy Analysis

release date: Dec 13, 2021
Natural Resource And Environmental Policy Analysis
As natural resources have become scarcer, issues of environmental policy have become more vital and subject to debate in global as well as local arenas. Through the use of case studies especially developed for this book, the authors analyze the wide range of institutional contexts in which natural resource and environmental policy issues arise and the processes by which they are resolved. The first chapter provides a theoretical framework of key resource and environmental economics concepts-an overview that gradually broadens as the student is exposed to alternative methods of analysis, including market-oriented analysis, institutional analysis, and modeling. The case studies all begin with discussions of the pertinent biological, physical, social, and institutional issues before economic analysis is applied and policy conclusions are drawn. Suggested readings and study questions follow each chapter. This book is designed for use in upper-level college courses in natural resource and environmental economics and graduate courses in resource management. It can be used either as a primary text in conjunction with theoretical readings or as a supplemental source of case study readings. The cases will also be valuable for natural resource, environmental, and community development economists.

Mountaintops and Mai Tais

release date: Sep 28, 2021
Mountaintops and Mai Tais
In this fascinating book, award-winning author Douglas Johnston traces his circuitous and largely unpredictable path from gathering intelligence on Soviet naval forces through the periscope of a nuclear submarine to blazing new trails in diplomacy by incorporating religious considerations into the practice of international politics. The first half of the book, which is laced with humorous episodes in his life's journey, marries with a more serious half that describes the role he played in developing and later putting into practice a new form of engagement called Faith-based Diplomacy. The results of its practice are little short of amazing and make for captivating reading. They also reaffirm the value of living out a higher sense of purpose. 18.

In no aspects of life today do we confront more rapid and easily confusing change than in the worlds of gender and intimacy. Men and women equally are left without clear guideposts for their choices. In this short book, one of our time's most innovative social scientists and futurists offers big-picture perspective for making sense of why we see what we do and what lies ahead. He describes an essential new chapter in identity and love, one that takes us beyond the battle of the sexes and brings new depth and maturity to both how we understand ourselves and our capacity for closeness with another.
