Review:

this collection makes an important contribution to the growing sub-field of philosophy known as environmental ethics. the collection s appeal lies in the wide array of cross-cultural viewpoints expressed by its several contributors viewpoints that, for better or worse, have received little or no attention in the current literature. As a result, the essays expose the reader to perspectives that many journal editors and publishing houses have neglected in their haste to locate a broader audience for this growing sub-field. By transcending the orthodox view of environmental ethics, the collection fills an important niche in: Philosophy in Review XXX (2010), No. 5"
