As global capitalism expands and reaches ever-further corners of the world, practical problems continue to escalate and repercussions become increasingly serious and irreversible. These practical problems carry with them equally important and ethical issues.
Global Ethics and Environment explores these ethical issues from a range of perspectives and using a wide range of case studies. Chapters focus on: the impact of development in new industrial regions; the ethical relationship between human and non-human nature; the application of ethics in different cultural and institutional contexts; environmental injustice in the location of hazardous materials and processes; the ethics of the impact of a single event (Chernobyl) on the global community; the ethics of transitional institutions.
This collection will both stimulate debate and provide an excellent resource for wide-ranging case study material and solid academic context.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The strength of this volume lies in its presentation of a broad range of theoretical constructs. As such, it is best suited to a course with a specific focus on environmental ethics or philosophy. Particularly in a graduate-level course, this collection of essays would provide an excellent resource for discussion and debate on whether and how our global institutions will be transformed if we are to achieve equitable and ecologically sustainable development.."
-Teresa L. Bulman, Department of Geography, Portland State University, Portland, OR
