Reviews

"Bruce Jennings is a world-class expert on bioethics and public policy whose work is widely read by academics in a variety of disciplines. His ambitious and remarkable new book makes a convincing case that we must adopt new moral values and ethical standards for behavior informed by an ecological worldview and predicated on our best scientific understanding of human survival on planet Earth."
-- Robert Nadeau, author of The Environmental Endgame: Mainstream Economics, Ecological Disaster, and Human Survival



"The grace of Jennings's prose and the relative brevity of the text make this an especially approachable and appealing contribution to environmental political theory."
-- Ben A. Minteer, author of Refounding Environmental Ethics: Pragmatism, Principle, and Practice
