Just Ecological Integrity presents a collection of revised and expanded essays originating from the international conference "Connecting Environmental Ethics, Ecological Integrity, and Health in the New Millennium" held in San Jose, Costa Rica in June 2000. It is a cooperative venture of the Global Ecological Integrity Project and the Earth Charter Initiative.

Beginning with an in depth look at the history and meaning of the Earth Charter itself, Just Ecological Integrity moves to consider the systems of measurement necessary to indicate progress in achieving the Earth Charter's goals. Contributors to the volume explore such issues as the reciprocal impacts between humans and nature; human destructiveness; and the various ways in which the revaluation of nature in terms of intrinsic qualities affects broader notions of justice. A rich collection of case studies enhances the volume and examines such issues as violence, risk, and the preservation of nature in local circumstances.

About the Author:

Peter Miller is professor of philosophy at the Centre for Forest Interdisciplinary Research at the University of Winnipeg and publishes in environmental ethics, forest policy, and public values. He is active on the Manitoba Round Table on Sustainable Development and several ENGOs, and is a former president of the Canadian Society for the Study of Practical Ethics.
Laura Westra is professor emerita of philosophy at the University of Windsor and the author or editor of numerous books, including An Environmental Proposal for Ethics (Rowman & Littlefield, 1994), Faces of Environmental Racism (Rowman & Littlefield, 1995), Perspectives on Ecological Integrity (Kluwer), The Greeks and the Environment (Rowman & Littlefield, 1997) and Technology and Values (Rowman & Littlefield, 1998).

Review:

Should be basic reading for all peace educators, providing them with a value framework for developing educational activities that highlight the link between social and ecological peace. The book makes a unique and excellent contribution to the most important area of global value inquiry and normative behaviour of humankind for the new millennium. (Journal Of Peace Education)

It should be of particular interest to academics, environmental and social justice activists, and policy makers. All levels. (CHOICE)
