In this much-needed account of what has gone wrong in our thinking about the environment, Val Plumwood digs at the roots of environmental degradation. She argues that we need to see nature as an end itself, rather than an instrument to get what we want. Using a range of examples, Plumwood presents a radically new picture of how our culture must change to accommodate nature.

MEDIA REVIEWS
""Environmental Culture is a rare blend of fierceness and tenderness. It boldly unmasks the institutional and systemic violence of our culture and simultaneously offers enchanting tributes to the communicativity and intentionality of "earth others." This exceptional combination of political acumen and radical vulnerability marks Val Plumwood as one of the most brilliant environmental thinkers of our time."
-Patsy Hallen, "Ethics & the Envionment
..."a splendid contribution to contemporary debates about environmental issues."
-Sandra Harding, UCLA
..."vintage Plumwood: clear, insightful, well-argued, compelling....Anyone interested in environmental, feminist, or political philosophy will want to read it."
-Karen Warren, Macalaster College
