About this book

This volume concentrates on how values enter into collecting, interpreting, communicating, and evaluating the evidence of risks.

"An excellent survey of a number of issues in environmental ethics."--Joel B. Goldsteen, University of Texas at Arlington
"This volume shows that rational, critical approaches to value-laden risk judgments can be fruitful, making possible more sophisticated risk assessments and risk management that better comprehends the values at stake....The focus on evidence of risk and values holds together the diversity of perspectives and real world examples, making the volume useful for teaching."--Ethics
