Book Description

March 27, 2007 0495095036 978-0495095033 5
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 Fifth Edition of the Pojmans' popular anthology, like its predecessors, includes numerous topic areas not covered in other anthologies-including an all-new section on Climate Change. 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. The bulk of royalties for this book are donated to groups dedicated to protecting the environment, such as the Wilderness Society and the Sierra Club.

Editorial Reviews


"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."

5.0 out of 5 stars Textbook Review February 21, 2010
By mp
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Buy it if you need it, otherwise pass. November 12, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.
