Editorial Reviews

Review

"I like the breadth and depth of this text, it allows me to teach the same course with the same text every time I teach it, but provides flexibility to add or drop topics and readings because of the wide number of essays included."

"In teaching my course, Environmental Ethics, over the past twenty years, I've used many different anthologies of readings, and Pojman's anthology is the best that I've come across. I'm very happy with the current text, but it seems to be improved with each edition."

"The book is essentially well-balanced, providing focus in both practical and theoretical areas."

This book was for a class I'm taking this semester and all of the articles in it have been really interesting. Environmental Ethics encompasses so many different subject areas and this book has incorporates so many different points of view that I feel like both sides of each topic covered have been equally represented.

I had to buy this for a class in environmental policy. The book was not worth it and I was able to finish the class without needing it just by doing some internet research. If you have to have it for a class buy it, otherwise it's a pass.
