About this book

Explores the intellectual history of the belief that nature has an intrinsic value unconnected to human interest and consequently possesses at least the right to exist. The author focuses on the American experience where natural rights ideology gradually expanded to encompass the rights of nature. An epilogue offers an analogy between the abolition of slavery and the extension of rights to nature.
