About this book

Presents a carefully argued response to what the author characterises as `two dogmas of environmentalism' - the assumptions that animal-rights philosophies and anthropocentric views are each antithetical to sound environmental policy.

All libraries supporting curricula in environmental ethics should own it ... Varner knows his field, including the relevant literature, and argues using logic and the tools of philosophers. He examines opposing views fairly. He also knows his biology well. Well written and mercifully short. Choice
