?...simply the best 'field-guide' to environmental philosophy anywhere. Dale Jamieson has assembled an insightful set of chapters - the topics are well chosen, the writing is crisp, and the thinking is compelling. The volume is also historically informed, theoretically rich, multicultural, and practical - all especially appreciated strengths.? William S. Lynn, The Hastings Center, Garrison, NY ?Featuring both first-rank scholars and superb new scholarship, this volume reflects well the many ways in which environmental philosophy not only pervades, but is also touched by, ancient and modern concerns.? Paul Waldau, Tufts University
