I bought this for my ecology class but of course it's relevant to all of my Environmental Science courses. Like the title says, it presents "clashing views" on many different environmental issues. If you are just getting started in the field, or are simply interested in the subject, I highly recommend this. Not only will you learn about different issues, but you will also learn the main arguments about them. It's not just leftist and it's not just rightist, you'll see both sides and it will help you become truly informed. Regardless of where you stand, you will get to learn what the other side is saying. It's always good to gain perspective :)

This is a great book that tackles many current issues about the environment. I like how each topic has an argument from two opposing sides. Some of the essays can be long and boring, but for the most part they are very informative and a great discussion starter.

This book was disappointing to myself, my professor, and other members of my class. More than one of the issues it examines feature debates that aren't actually debates, arguments from two sides that aren't actually opposed once you make anything but the most casual effort to read and analyze the essays presented. Perhaps the editor didn't have access to truly opposed essays of appropriate length for each topic, but I don't see that as a valid excuse for the spurious confrontations the book includes.
