"This significantly expanded second edition is indispensable." Times Higher Education "A beautifully written account which is immensely satisfying and informative to read. I have seldom read better." LSE Politics Blog "A must read – not only for greenies, but especially for the lay person seeking more information on the subject, both from a theoretical and from a practical point of view." Ethical Perspectives "It is easy to see why Curry′s book is highly relevant to the modern environmentalist. His writing is accessible and his voice doesn′t get in the way of the big topics he covers. Such clarity of expression is of great importance for a book that possesses such intellectual vigour. Moreover, such an approach means this can be read and understood not by academics alone but by anyone wishing to better understand their own reactions to environmental dilemmas as well as other people′s." The Ecologist "Contributes both an original perspective to the field of environmental philosophy and an accessible comprehensive introductory text for undergraduates." Newsletter of the International Society for Environmental Ethics "Curry′s book is a significant contribution, and it is wholeheartedly recommended for those who are interested in building a better world." Mother Pelican "A profoundly useful and informative guide." Morning Star " Ecological Ethics is the best practical introduction to the role of philosophy in understanding the greatest environmental challenges of our time. Everyone who wants to make a difference should read it." David Rothenberg, New Jersey Institute of Technology and author of Survival of the Beautiful and Why Birds Sing "An excellent introduction to the different schools of ecological ethics, and as importantly, a strong defense of why a deep–green (or ecocentric) ethics represents the future of ethics if we humans wish to sustain a viable civilization on planet Earth." Erik Assadourian, Senior Fellow and Director of the Transforming Cultures Project, Worldwatch Institute "Curry is one of the most creative and important new voices in post–secular, or animistic, environmental ethics."
