Back cover copy

Lisa H. Newton, in Ethics and Sustainability, brings together the imperatives to live a good life in our own community and generation, and to preserve the natural environment for generations to come. She shows how a personal ethic of virtue must include a commitment to environmental preservation, how exciting new developments in technology make it truly possible to live and develop our communities sustainably on the earth, and how the traditional virtue of simplicity unifies environmental sensitivity with a focused and gracious life. In the simple life, "sustainable development" is an attainable goal.

Ethics and Sustainability: Sustainable Development and the Moral Life is the sixth book in the series, Basic Ethics in Action, edited by Michael Boylan, which is a major new undertaking by Prentice Hall covering several areas, including business ethics, environmental ethics, medical ethics, and social and political ethics.
