About this book

No one looking ahead at the middle of the last century could have foreseen the extent and the importance of the ensuing environmental crises. Now, more than a decade into the next century, no one can ignore it.

This book offers clear, powerful, and often moving thoughts from one of the first and most respected philosophers to write on the environment. Rolston, an early and leading pioneer in studying the moral relationship between humans and the earth, surveys the full spectrum of approaches in the field of environmental ethics. The book, however, is not simply a judicious overview. Instead, it offers critical assessments of contemporary academic accounts and draws on a lifetime of research and experience to suggest an outlook for the future.

Media reviews
This is an introduction to environmental ethics that only Holmes Rolston could write--at once gut-wrenchingly direct and poetically-inspired, it will attract new generations to the field that he did so much to create. --Dale Jamieson, New York University

"Holmes Rolston's New Environmental Ethics is new in the best sense: an honest, fresh appraisal of where we are and where we are heading. It likewise is old in the best sense. There comes a time to reflect on where we have been and why, what we have accomplished, and what we stand for. This is Rolston's time, and his is a voice that will be heard across generations." --David Schmidtz, University of Arizona

"A succinct overview of the field from its most important thinker, this book is the indispensable introduction to environmental ethics." --Willis Jenkins, Yale University

"With characteristic rigor, Rolston proves once again to be a moral explorer par excellence. His new book not only surveys the existing terrain of environmental ethics literature, but it persuasively argues for following a greener, more life-respecting morality; it is an exemplary read for an environmental ethics course." --Ben Dixon, Stephen F. Austin State University
