Pollution Markets in a Green Country Town: Urban Environmental Management in Transition

Praeger Publishers (1998)

"Policy types interested in environmental history and the evolving application of environmental management techniques will find this to be an interesting and informative book." Choice

"Urban environmental management is enriched by the publication of [this work]... Raufer's book is a well-researched piece of work. It is a very interesting and informative book. It has an excellent bibliography on environmental quality management...  It is an important contribution to the literature for environmental studies....This reviewer recommends it highly...." Natural Resources Forum

"[He] writes with style and humor, turning a potentially dull topic into lively reading.... Raufer's focus on a particular city is a good strategy. He describes Philadelphias specific problems and personalities in sufficient detail to make his account substantively weighty without seeming irrelevant or boring to non-Philadelphians.... My one regret about this fine book is that it is not available in a cheaper edition...." ISIS

"The rich historical perspective provided is very helpful in understanding the current state of environmental management as well as providing an outlook for its future development. I therefore highly recommend this book." Journal of Environmental Planning and Management

"The great value of this book, other than its interesting environmental history of a highly populated urban area, is the author's clear presentation of the primary issues of environmental management theory: pollution control mechanisms, health risk assessment, and latest considerations in emissions marketing, which will loom large in the ongoing global warming debate." Journal of Environmental Education
