Harris y Roach presentan una presentación compacta y accesible de los temas ambientales y de recursos básicos y más, con el rigor analítico, así como ejemplos interesantes y los debates políticos. Ellos toman un enfoque amplio de análisis teórico, utilizando tanto los análisis económicos y ecológicos estándar, y el desarrollo de éstas tanto desde puntos teóricos y prácticos de la vista. Supone una formación en economía básica, pero ofrece secciones de repaso breve de micro importante y conceptos macroeconómicos, así como apéndices con material más avanzado y técnico. Se proporcionan instructor y apoyo a los estudiantes materiales extensos, incluyendo diapositivas de PowerPoint, actualizaciones de datos, y los ejercicios de los estudiantes.
