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.
It was a rented copy, so full of previous highlighting that it made picking out the highlights much easier.
I wouldn't want to own this copy, and I was more than happy to return it after the course was completed.
