Reynolds R, Blackmore C, and Smith M, 2009, Zed Books

This is the set book for the OU course TD866 Environmental Decision Making: Ethics, Policy and Action

I really enjoyed this book and know that I will be referring to it from here on.

It deals in a very comprehensive way with issues of environmental ethics, what we mean when we talk about the environment, how to conceptualse and engage with it as well as issues of individual and collective responisbility, advocacy and activism, to name a few.

It's increadibly rich and diverse and feels like an authoritative text. If ian issue is worth considering in the context of the course title it's probably in the book!

Highly recommended for anyone with even a passing interest in environmental issues.
