In this expanded and revised edition of a fresh and original case-study textbook on environmental ethics, the authors continue to explore the line that separates the current state of the environment from what it should be in the future.
The book highlights specific cases which offer a rich and diverse range of situations from around the globe, from saving the forests of Java and the use of pesticides in developing countries to restoring degraded ecosystems in Nebraska. With an emphasis on the concrete circumstances of particular localities, the studies continue to focus on the dilemmas and struggles of individuals and communities who face daunting decisions with serious consequences.
This edition of Boundaries maintains its outstanding features: an in-depth overview of environmental ethics theories as well as global religions and ecology, that inform substantive case studies. Four new cases are engaging and timely additions to this essential text.-Pamela Brubaker, professor of religion and ethics, California Lutheran University "An excellent, provocative introduction to environmental ethics, beginning 'on the ground' in practice and searching for a 'well-grounded' principled ethic. . . . Here is environmental ethics at its most complex, challenging boundaries, bordering the tragic, with a deep sense of its urgency."-Holmes Rolston, III, University Distinguished Professor, Colorado State University and winner of the 2003 Templeton Prize, reviewing a previous edition or volume
