Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Edited by a team of nationally-recognized experts, this anthology features the best available selections — some written especially for this volume.

Conceptually focused and easily manageable, this book is divided into five sections that explore the full spectrum of concerns in contemporary Eco-philosophy — Environmental Ethics, Deep Ecology, Ecofeminism, Political Ecology, Animal Liberation/Rights.

Book News Annotation:

These 25 contributions discuss current problems in the areas of environmental ethics, deep ecology, ecofeminism, and political ecology. Topics include free-market and socialist environmentalism, sustainable development, social ecology, bioregionalism , ecotage, and ways for environmental ethicists to respond to the scientific challenges to the ecosystem paradigm. No index.
