Global Ethics and Environment by Assoc Prof Nicholas Low

Book Description

As global capitalism expands and reaches ever-further corners of the world, practical problems continue to escalate and repercussions become increasingly serious and irreversible. These practical problems carry with them equally important and ethical issues. Global Ethics and Environment explores these ethical issues from a range of perspectives and using a wide range of case studies. Chapters focus on: the impact of development in new industrial regions; the ethical relationship between human and non-human nature; the application of ethics in different cultural and institutional contexts; environmental injustice in the location of hazardous materials and processes; the ethics of the impact of a single event (Chernobyl) on the global community; the ethics of transitional institutions. This collection will both stimulate debate and provide an excellent resource for wide-ranging case study material and solid academic context.

Transforming Urban Transport by Assoc Prof Nicholas Low Transforming Urban Transport, Hardback (November 2012)

Transforming Urban Transport confronts head-on the dilemma faced by a world wedded to mobility: the danger of continuing along the fossil-fuelled path and the real paucity of viable technological alternatives which can be deployed in time.

Institutional Barriers to Sustainable Transport by Assoc Prof Nicholas Low Institutional Barriers to Sustainable Transport, Hardback (September 2012)

Through an examination of transport planning in Australia, this book challenges conventional wisdom by showing, through original research, how 'car dependence' is as much an institutional as a technical phenomenon. It brings sophisticated political-institutional analysis to what has traditionally been the domain of engineering and technology.

Govering for the Environment by Assoc Prof Nicholas Low Govering for the Environment, Hardback (January 2001)

Explores one dimension of the value-knowledge system needed in any movement towards humane governance for the planet: the ecological sustainability and integrity of the Earth's environment. Contributors explore various ethical issues that must inform future global regulation of the environment.
