Green Ethics and Philosophy
An A-to-Z Guide

Edited by:


June 2011 | 504 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This eighth volume in the SAGE Series on Green Society covers the moral relationship between humans and their natural environment, specifically targeting the contemporary green movement. Since the 1960s, green ethics and philosophies have helped give birth to the civil rights, feminist, and gay rights movements, as well as contemporary environmentalism. With a primary focus on green environmental ethics, this reference work, available in both print and electronic formats, presents approximately 150 signed entries arranged A-to-Z, traversing a wide range of curricular disciplines, including philosophy, psychology, business, economics, religion, and political science. A rich blend of topics, from the Hannover Principle to green eco-feminism, responsible eco-tourism, corporate values and sustainability, and more, are explained by university professors and scholars, all contributing to an outstanding reference mainly for academic and public libraries.

“This should be a useful set of publications on a timely topic….”

CHOICE

These two volumes would prove their worth in any library reference collection. If costs prohibit purchase of the entire series, each volume is $110; the two volumes reviewed here could still provide a great deal of reference assistance. Highly recommended.
