“Environmental Ethics” by Joseph Des Jardins is a balanced and relatively complete introduction to an issue that is bound to be widely discussed in the decades ahead. After two introductory chapters in which he discusses among other matters various approaches to moral decision making (such as utilitarian and deontological ethics), subsequent chapters include issues such as managing public lands, sustainability and responsibility to the future, anthropocentric and biocentric ethics and the inherent value of life, the land ethics, deep ecology, ecofeminism, and environmental justice and social equality.
