Media reviews
Ecological Planning should be read by all institutional and public choice economists who work toward solving problems associated with human use of the natural environment. -- Gerald F. Vaughn Journal of Economic Issues [Ndubisi] writes with impressive clarity and command of the diverse literatures covered... Highly recommended. Choice 2003 It is a thoughtful and provocative book because it places ecological thinking centre stage... An original analysis in which the multiple intellectual origins and practices of dominant approaches to ecological planning are traced and analysed with sensitivity. -- Carolyn Harrison Environment and Planning B: Planning and Design
