This book is a major work in the field of environmental philosophy that sets out to describe and explain the many strands of thought that underlie and support the environment movement. Author Peter Hay says his aim in writing the book has been to provide a faithful account of 'the main feeder streams that flow into the swift-running river of Western environmental thought'. In his home state of Tasmania, Hay is well known as a poet and his lyrical style gives the book a fresh, timeless style. This book will attract significant interest from members of the environmental activist community, and those interested in environmental and philosophy literature. As a text or reference work, the book is likely to be used in upper level tertiary courses in Environmental Studies. It will also have significant trans-disciplinary relevance in Politics and Government, Philosophy and Religion, Sociology, Cultural Studies, Geography, and Resource management.
