More About the Author
"Curry makes a challenging subject accessible, especially to students ... a fine little book."
Ethics and the Environment
"A profoundly useful and informative guide."
"An exhaustive and thorough overview of what constitutes ′ethics′ when dealing with humanity′s effects on the planet ... This book provides a radical and cutting–edge look at contemporary Green ethics."
Journal for the Study of Religion, Nature and Culture
"As a concise and very accessible primer, it qualifies eminently as required reading for any university–level course on ecological ethics. Curry is a deep thinker, fully alert to the need for grounding critique in a consistent philosophical soil and respectfully cautious about hastening to polemical judgements."
"The book is straightforward, clear, and most important, an overview of the primary doctrines in environmental ethics. Above all, it is down to earth. Undergraduates love that."
Organization and the Environment
"A lively and intelligent book that brings much–needed good sense to bear on a crucially important subject."
Mary Midgley, formerly University of Newcastle
"Ecological ethics is a new discipline, but it is already extremely rich. We urgently need a guidebook that unravels the different strands in ecological philosophy and links them with practical issues about the relations of humans with the non–human world. Patrick Curry has given us that book."
John Gray, London School of Economics and Political Science
"This book is a brilliant introduction to the ethical basis of the ecology movement. It is a handbook for survival for ourselves and for our planet."
Paul Watson, Founder and President of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Co–founder of Greenpeace and National Director of the Sienna Club USA
