Environmental Ethics for a Postcolonial World (Nature's Meaning) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Deane Curtin puts today's most important social and environmental ethical issues into their historical, political, and philosophical contexts, and offers deep insights into the nature of our freedom and its relation to justice in our globalized, commercialized culture. Using familiar literary and historical icons to make surprising points about colonial attitudes and practices, he also demonstrates the unique linkages between colonialism and environmentalism. Using an array of well-documented cases from around the world, Environmental Ethics for a Postcolonial World is an accessible and very readable book ideal for students of environmental ethics, globalization, environmental politics, or environmental political theory, as well as for anyone interested in policy and practical options for change.

Book News Annotation:

Curtain (philosophy, Gustavus Adolphus College) explains to students of environmental ethics and to general readers how people can develop an awareness of third world issues when they are so geographically and conceptually distant from the third world. He focuses on what he characterizes as the puzzling legacy of the British Utilitarians, who devised schemes to control colonial India in what was then the voice of liberal reform and egalitarianism.
