Major New Edited Volume

Clive L. Spash, editor (2017) Routledge Handbook of Ecological Economics: Nature and Society. (external link). This book brings together 50 new articles, commissioned by the editor from 63 international authors. The Handbook is the most comprehensive source of original work on Ecological Economics to date. It addresses the meaning and content of Ecological Economics as a field of knowledge covering both critical social and natural science perspectives. A special emphasis is placed upon the importance of social ecological economics.  It dispels the myth of there being no alternatives to mainstream economics and orthodox thinking, analysis and tools.
