GDAE Textbooks 

GDAE's texts provide coverage of Principles of Economics and Environmental Economics including standard analyses and heterodox and ecological approaches.
Of all the textbooks I have seen, yours is by far the most balanced and indisputably the best value! I think you have done a fantastic job in presenting the mainstream material in a non-mainstream way.

Microeconomics in Context

Inexpensive and innovative, Microeconomics in Context covers microeconomic concepts and models while including serious consideration of ecological and social concerns. Rather than focusing only on markets and efficiency, this book starts with the question of human well-being and then examines how economic activities can contribute to, or detract from, well-being. It includes a new chapter on behavioral economics and rationality.
