About this book

This welcome, refreshing book Environmental Dilemmas trains a searchlight on the most important issue which faces environmentalists – how to successfully translate theory and principle into practice. The contributors – most of them scientists – have all had to make environmental decisions. Their case studies set out the factors which they have had to consider in devising actions which will affect the environment. Environmental Dilemmas is not a description of decision-making theory, nor is it an apology for cynical pragmatism; the authors are all committed environmentalists who have tried to maintain their principles whilst producing answers to real problems.

The contributors include: Lord Ashby, Andrew Brennan, Frank B Golley, Peter Brimblecombe, TM Roberts, John Sheaill, E Lewis, J Roberts, Bryn Green, Giles Wyburd, Brian Moss, J Morton Boyd, Ruth Harrison, OW Heal, David A Everest.

Media reviews

"Thought provoking"
Integral Environmental Management

"All of the chapters are well written"
Environmental Policy and Practice

"[...] The appearance of a book which claims to shed light on some of these issues is to be welcomed."
ECOS

"[...] this book is an important addition to the 'environmental' literature"
Journal of Environmental Studies

"This set of essays is broad and deep. Each author writes from a position of authority [...] The book does an especially good job of presenting the range of different positions, values and attitudes that emerge in environmental disputes, and the roles played by different groups [...] The authors provide rich scientific detail, and are especially good at highlighting what they view as central ethical dilemmas, and the difficulty of reconciling the perspectives of science with those of planning and public policy. The essays may be particularly helpful for graduate students and others in the sciences who are likely to confront similar dilemmas in their careers"
The Quarterly Review of Biology
