Cambridge University Press Selects Barbier’s Work for Book of the Month

November 22, 2010 —  University of Wyoming Professor Edward Barbier's new book, "Scarcity of Frontiers" has been chosen as a Cambridge University Press Book of the Month.

According to Cambridge's quarterly newsletter, "Throughout much of history, a critical driving force behind global economic development has been the response of society to the scarcity of key natural resources. In this book Edward Barbier provides a fascinating account of the contribution that natural resource exploitation has made to economic development in key eras of world history."

Barbier, the John S. Bugas Professor of Economics in the College of Business Department of Economics and Finance, has more than 25 years experience as an environmental and resource economist, working on natural resource and development issues and also the interface between economics and ecology. His book "Natural Resources and Economic Development," was published in 2005 by Cambridge University Press.
