Written in an accessible style and including many case studies, Environmental Law and Ethics is a concise text not only for students of law and related courses but also for all who are interested in environmental matters.
Do we owe our duties to future generations? Do animals have rights? Should nature be respected for its own sake or only as a resource for human use? These questions and others are explored in the book, which takes a fresh approach by exploring environmental law in the context of ethical ideas. Written in an accessible style and including many case studies, Environmental Law and Ethics is a concise text not only for students of law and related courses but also for all who are interested in environmental matters.
