9780495095033: Environmental Ethics: Readings in Theory and Application

The most comprehensive introduction to environmental ethics available, ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS offers students a current look at the issues and topics that dominate the field today, organized into two main parts that take students seamlessly from theory to application. This Fifth Edition of the Pojmans' popular anthology, like its predecessors, includes numerous topic areas not covered in other anthologies-including an all-new section on Climate Change. Featuring articles carefully selected for clarity and accessibility, the text follows a dialogic pro-con format presenting divergent positions on each topic, ensuring that students are both exposed to and understand both sides of every topic so they can develop their own informed positions. The bulk of royalties for this book are donated to groups dedicated to protecting the environment, such as the Wilderness Society and the Sierra Club.

Review:

"I like the breadth and depth of this text, it allows me to teach the same course with the same text every time I teach it, but provides flexibility to add or drop topics and readings because of the wide number of essays included."

"In teaching my course, Environmental Ethics, over the past twenty years, I've used many different anthologies of readings, and Pojman's anthology is the best that I've come across. I'm very happy with the current text, but it seems to be improved with each edition."

"The book is essentially well-balanced, providing focus in both practical and theoretical areas."
