About this book

Ecologism is a political ideology based on the proposition that the non-human world is worthy of moral consideration, and that this should be taken into account in social, economic, and political systems. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to this philosophy, which is recognized as a major development in environmental politics.

Brian Baxter's book will be a valuable contribution to the field of green moral and political theory, constituting an original contribution to the development of green normative theory in particular and contemporary political theory in general. It covers some of the standard issues in the area as well as making some genuine original advances, and is written in an elegant and eloquent style. -- Dr John Barry There is a need for this book ! I would recommend it as essential reading." -- Tim Hayward In sum, this is a valuable book, whose author is determined to show that ecologism has its own and autonomous standpoints and values.
