This is a timely addition to Oxfords series of Very Short Introductions. As befits an introduction, the material is presented in a manner designed to help the reader to gain an overview of issues and debates in the field. * The Heythrop Journal * Surprise! Attfield can write a very concise introduction to environmental ethics with all the precision already shown in his dozen full length works. * Holmes Rolston III, Colorado State University * Attfield's new book confirms him as one of the most eloquent voices in present-day environmental ethics. It combines philosophical depth with extreme readability and makes a suggestive case for an ethics that pays tribute to the value of non-human nature. * Dieter Birnbacher * The great achievement of Attfield's Attfields book is to demonstrate that there is a coherent, intuitively plausible, and useful conception of inclusive environmental protection... The book will be of interest to students taking courses in environmental ethics, but also to students who are taking philosophy and geography, and to people of other professions engaged with the environment. * Wilson J. Simon, UTAFITI * This very readable book is a survey of the wide range of questions that faces anyone who thinks seriously about our environment and the future of our planet... Everyone interested in the environment and the possibility of impending catastrophe should read [it]. * Alan York, The Friend * Environmental Ethics offers an entertaining, concise, and genuinely enlightening means to commence one's engagement with the subject. * Nicole Souter, The Philosopher *
