Part of the Earthscan Reader Series
  • The only reader of its kind in the field of environmental values, a universal theme in all environmental studies courses
  • Contains clearly written introductions that map out the schools of thought and provide valuable context
  • Highly accessible; ideal for students
  • Draws on material from a broad spectrum of international authors to create a cutting-edge overview of the field
This comprehensive reader offers in-depth analyses of critical developments in environmental values, bringing together in one volume the most influential scholarship in the field. Each carefully selected contribution assesses some of the most pressing questions of our time, such as: what is the relationship between human values, worldviews and preferences, and the natural world?

As the first reader of its kind in a rapidly expanding multidisciplinary field, this text provides students with a valuable framework for understanding the intellectual progress and future development of the study of environmental values. The book clearly emphasizes that environmental values must be understood not only as economic, cost-benefit or 'willingness to pay' considerations, but also as normative principles, fundamental to behaviour and management practices.
