A Companion to Environmental Thoughtsets out to introduce the many strands of thought within the western environment movement. It provides a comprehensive overview of the complex and endlessly transforming state of western environmentalism, surveying the main strands of thought from the fields of politics, philosophy, religion, and economics. Peter Hay presents the major issues debated in these fields by environmentalists, and also by their opponents.Each chapter covers the main strands of thought in detail and also includes the seminal contributions from any 'sub-strands'. Each chapter concludes with a section considering the problems that face the particular line of thought presented.With its broad-ranging coverage this book is likely to become a core textbook on all environment-related courses.
