Publisher Comments:

Environmental issues can be complex. You need an environmental ethics textbook that you can actually understand. WATERSHEDS 4: TEN CASES IN ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS provides ten fascinating case studies of real-life environmental conflicts and explains the principles involved in an easy-to-understand, impartial way.

Book News Annotation:

Designed as a supplementary text for undergraduate and graduate level courses, this volume contains ten cases illustrating issues of environmental ethics. A sampling of topics includes the perils of global climate change, the political backlash surrounding genetically modified organisms, and the evolution of antibiotic-resistant germs. The final chapter considers the importance of preserving biological diversity.
