Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0072430974, Paperback)

This debate-style reader is designed to introduce students to controversies in environmental policy and science. The readings, which represent the arguments of leading environmentalists, scientists, and policymakers, reflect a variety of viewpoints and are staged as "pro" and "con" debates. Issues are organised around four core areas: general philosophical and political issues, the environment and technology, disposing of wastes, and the environment and the future.
