Joseph DesJardins's "Environmental Ethics" provides a well-balanced introduction to the subject. The first two chapters are introductory and are primarily devoted to what is sometimes called theoretical ethics. In them the author describes the different approaches to decision making in the area of morality (such as utilitarian and deontological ethics).

I ordered this book and it was not even the right book it was an organic chemistry book.
I downloaded and rented the E-Book for a class I took over the course of 1 semester. It arrived just as any E book would, and I had no problems downloading it onto the Kindle app for IPad. It's a textbook, therefore I thought it was a pretty dry read. however, I did enjoy thinking about Des Jardins various points he makes about the ethics in the environment, where humans fall into the natural order, and how we can further expand our thoughts and personal ethic to care about the world around us. History and philosophy pave the way towards a personal ethic (in my opinion) and I would say that I learned a great deal from this class with the aide of that book.
This book was for my class in College. I was excited about it, because I'm extremely environmentally conscious and thought that the subject matter would be an exciting debate. By the fourth chapter, I was dreading the reading. It turned out to be just a repetitive drone of a "survey of philosophy" with lots of quotes from philosophers. Hopefully, your teacher will be good enough to have boiled it down and focuses on the ideas behind the writing. I recommend renting this book, as you likely wouldn't read it twice.

This book was required for my college course, and I must say that this book was...interesting. This book is written in a way that if you're not fully into environmental ethics, it will be a hard read. There were points of the book where after reading a paragraph, I would have no idea what I just read because of the way its written. To anyone who must rent this book, good luck and you will get through this!
A bit out of date and a bit wordy for my taste! Read it for class, and it was sometimes a pain to get through. Wish the other was more straight to the point. But I guess it is a philosophy book!
I hate this book. The layout is horrible making it more like a novel vs a useful text book to study from.
So I had to buy for a class but. The newest version is great for new and timely examples .
