Should Trees Have Standing?: And Other Essays on Law, Morals & the Environment
Synopses & Reviews
In this influential work, Stone argues that special guardians be empowered to speak for the "voiceless" elements in nature, in effect, to give legal standing in the court of law to endangered species and threatened forests.
The 25th anniversary edition features an additional collection of his most influential writings:
· How to Heal the Planet
· The Convention on Biological Diversity
· Should We Establish a Guardian to Speak for Future Generations?
· An Environmental Ethic for the 21st Century
A new Introduction and Epilogue, "Trees" at Twenty-Five, narrate the reception of the Should Trees Have Standing? thesis in various countries, and appraise the present state of the environmental movement.
