Media reviews
This book is a great achievement and should be read by everyone interested in ecology, environmental ethics, and environmental law. If we could assume familiarity with the claims and arguments in this book, the level of public debate about environmental policy would be significantly improved. Ethics "...a timely book that will enliven many graduate seminars." R.H. Peters, Quarterly Review of Biology
