About this book

Introduction

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.
