Environmental policy has been defined as 'a set of principles and intentions used to guide decision-making about human management of environmental capital and environmental services' (Roberts, 2004). Although it draws on concepts from environmental philosophy and environmental politics (and from many other scientific and social scientific disciplines), environmental policy is distinctive in its problem-solving orientation.

This four volume set contains 82 classic and cutting edge papers in the field of environmental policy, together with commentary by the editor.
