Publisher Comments:

Edited by leading experts in contemporary environmental philosophy, Michael E. Zimmerman and colleagues showcase the best available selections in environmental ethics that cover the full range of positions within this rapidly developing field. Conceptually focused and easily manageable, this anthology is divided into four sections, all with their own introductions by internationally known experts. The sections explore the full spectrum of concerns in contemporary eco-philosophy: environmental ethics, ecofeminism and social justice, environmental continental philosophy, and political ecology. New to this Edition:
  • Both the ecofeminism and social justice sections have been expanded, allowing students to explore both topics in greater depth.
  • New section on continental environmental philosophy (edited by Irene Klaver) offers students the latest developments in environmental philosophy. including eco-phenomenology and the debate about the "social construction" of nature.
  • Expanded political ecology section includes new essays on ecofascism, criticism of libertarian environmental policy, and the modern "megamachine" that is threatening the biosphere.
