The most comprehensive introduction to environmental ethics available, ENVIRONMENTAL ETHICS offers students a current look at the issues and topics that dominate the field today, organized into two main parts that take students seamlessly from theory to application. This Sixth Edition of the Pojmans' popular anthology, like its predecessors, includes numerous topic areas not covered in other anthologies. Featuring articles carefully selected for clarity and accessibility, the text follows a dialogic pro-con format presenting divergent positions on each topic, ensuring that students are both exposed to and understand both sides of every topic so they can develop their own informed positions. New selections include selections on Food Ethics and Climate Change and Energy Policy. Most of the royalties for this book are donated to groups dedicated to protecting the environment, such as the Wilderness Society and the Sierra Club.

3.0 out of 5 stars Semi-relevant text April 22 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This text was required reading for a graduate level environmental ethics course. While I felt that some of the essays were relevant, more than a few came across as lengthy diatribes filled with dense self-important babbling. In some cases concepts were introduced that were never fully explained, and then were critiqued by other authors who also did not feel a pressing need to define said concept(s). The lack of an index for this anthology made many such essays particularly difficult to get through, as it felt that the editors were in some ways just as confused as the readers when bringing together important concepts for useful review. Future editions could benefit from a lengthier introduction to each subject chapter, with indexed references, put together by the editors, and would in all probability then make this a superior text in the field. Updating many of the essays to reflect current schools of thought would also be useful. All in all, three stars for format.

5.0 out of 5 stars A well-balanced anthology Feb. 20 2013
By Doug Erlandson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
"Environmental Ethics: Readings in Theory and Application" is about the best anthology dealing specifically with environmental ethics that I have come across. Now in its Sixth Edition, "Environmental Ethics" includes an excellent balance of classical (e.g., Kant and J.S. Mill) and contemporary writings in the field. Moreover, the articles anthologized represent a range of viewpoints, with no one perspective dominating. A proper balance has been struck.

Topics include animal rights, pollution, population and consumption, ecological ethics, climate change, econfeminism, sustainability, and others. Each major section is preceded by a brief but helpful introduction setting out the major issues and giving a quick synopsis of the various articles that follow. There is more than enough material in this anthology for a semester-length course devoted specifically to environmental ethics.

Like most texts, the price tag is far more than it should be. But this drawback does not detract from the quality of the book.

fascinating book. highly convoluted writing at times, though that's often to be expected in a dialogue regarding ethics and personal opinions.
