Case Studies in Environmental Ethics is a collection of more than 40 case studies covering diverse topics such as: genetic engineering, aesthetics, pollution, animal rights, population, and resource management. It is intended as a supplemental book for college courses primarily in Environmental Ethics. Each case presents factual information on a particular topic, followed by a discussion of the ethical implications of each topic and several insightful discussion questions. The cases are concise yet rich in detail and controversy to provide significant classroom discussion. These cases focus on philosophical and policy decisions that students are likely to encounter in their everyday lives. In addition, the book provides numerous sources and an Internet resources section to allow students to research the issues found in the cases.
