Tietenberg & Lewis’s Environmental Economics and Policy is an ideal text for professors looking for policy-oriented coverage of environmental economics that is accessible to both non-majors and majors alike. A companion text to the larger Environmental and Natural Resource Economics, the smaller, paper-bound policy text is for a broader audience, including political science, environmental studies, and agricultural programs.

Tietenberg/Lewis provides a broad but nuanced introduction to the field of environmental economics. The text begins with an introduction to core concepts and theory, followed by a series of policy chapters that are self-contained and thus allow a great degree of flexibility in course design. Boxes throughout the text introduce a large number of real-world examples and ongoing policy debates in order to bring new perspective to the issues being discussed.
