About this book

&i;`The book is a detailed and absorbing piece of research that demonstrates the immense practical importance of ethical theories... Cranor presents a sympathetic assessment of a problem that is significant to us all, not because of the theoretical difficulties involved, but because it ultimately affects the quality of human lives.'&o; Times Higher Education Supplement

will usefully introduce ... philosophically unsophisticated readers to some key normative and epistemological issues in environmental policy ... and will usefully introduce philosophical readers to both empirical and philosophical problems and issues in regulatory science". David Copp, University of California The arguments it contains are important and original and should be heard Judith Schwartzbaum, University of Tennessee
