From the Publisher"Jamieson offers a welcome new volume for those in search of accessible, sophisticated, and sustained discussions of the ethical perspectives that inform the discipline...Essential."
-K. Doran, Hamilton College, Choice
"The material covered in the chapters on ethics is essential to a proper understanding of ethics and the environment, and the chapter on animals is a clear and concise account of that very relevant topic. Add those elements to the illuminating discussion of the value of nature, and the result is a book that can be recommended with confidence to anyone interested in learning about ethics, the environment and the interaction between them."
-Peter Singer, Times Literary Supplement
"Jamieson has written a careful and compelling introductory text—as those familiar with his work would expect. He successfully navigates difficult waters for those writing textbooks...Jamieson has a knack for finding compelling examples to illustrate difficult points, and a strong ability to anticipate common student reactions to important claims and arguments. He also provides thoughtful responses to such reactions, encouraging students to think more deeply about the issues. These are no small achievements. Ethics and the Environment would serve as an excellent text for any lower-level environmental ethics course, and could well be used in many environmental studies and ethics classes, more broadly.
