About this book

Since the beginning of the 1990s, Peter Kahn has studied children, young adults and parents in diverse geographical locations, ranging from an economically impoverished black community in Houston to a remote village in the Brazilian Amazon. Kahn seeks answers to the following questions: how do people value nature, and how do they reason morally about environmental degradation?; do children have a deep connection to the natural world that gets severed by modern society or do such connections emerge, if at all, later in life?; how does culture affect environmental commitments and sensibilities?; and are there universal features in the human relationship with nature? Kahn's empirical and theoretical findings draw on late-1990s work in psychology, biology, environmental behaviour, education, policy and moral development.

Media reviews
This book is extraordinarily well organized and well written and is thus fully accessible to both specialists and nonspecialists concerned with the relationship between humans and the natural environment. Important for any environmentalist, this work is an indispensable source for scholars of environmental ethics (moral reasoning and values, both obligatory and discretionary) and for practitioners of environmental education, particularly at the important elementary level. - Arthur H. Westing, Environment"
