Jordi Roca Jusmet and Joan Martinez Alier have published the third edition -updated and extended- of the book Economía ecológica y política ambiental (Fondo de Cultura Económica, Mexico). The fist edition of this book appeared in 2000 and the second edition in 2001; after that, it was reprinted several times. The book has had a great diffusion both in Spain and Latin America. It analyses several theoretical perspectives on the relationship between nature and economic systems, different experiences of environmental policies and several cases of environmental conflicts. It has been used as the reference textbook in ecological economics and environmental and resource economics courses both for economics and environmental sciences students. The 2013 edition (640 pages) updates the previous editions and incorporates new sections.
