Trade and the Environment: Theory and Evidence
  • M. Scott Taylor, University of Calgary
  • Brian A. Copeland, University of British Columbia

“Copeland and Taylor have opened the way to a better dialogue between economists and environmentalists. Their book will surely take its place on the shelves of trade economists and environmentalists.”—James Anderson, Journal of International Economics

“[A] well-written book. . . . As Copeland and Taylor make clear, there is a good deal of scope for additional research on the topic of trade and environment, and this book provides a great starting point for such research.” —Josh Ederington, World Trade Review

“This book is systematically developed and well presented.” —Richard N. Cooper, Environment

“This well-written book goes right to the jugular, presenting an integrated, coherent view of the ‘trade and environment’ issue.” —James Cassing, University of Pittsburgh

“This book provides a unified presentation of important themes relating to international trade and the environment. There is no team better qualified to write such a book, and there are no close substitutes to this book.”—Larry Karp, University of California, Berkeley
