A valuable and unique contribution both to environmental ethics and public policy analysis of the preservation of species question. Norton provides a critical overview of the range of thought on the issue, presents a new and comprehensive rationale for preservation of both species and ecosystems, and addresses policy issues.

Originally published in 1988.

The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Reviews:

"[Bryan Norton] seeks to offer directions, to stimulate readers to ask the right questions, and to clarify some of the fuzzy thinking that pervades sections of the conservation movement. I found this a helpful and well-structured book written with a clarity of style and logic not always found in philosophic treatises. . . . Why Preserve Natural Variety? arrives at an opportune time. Biodiversity is a current catch word and Norton provides a good analysis of both the arguments supporting biodiversity and the criticisms by skeptics."--David R. Given, BioScience

"Norton's book is a fine companion piece to his anthology The Preservation of Species (Princeton University Press, 1986). . . . Rewarding reading for anyone who has ever reflected on why, how, or if natural habitats should be preserved."--Library Journal

"A valuable and unique contribution both to environmental ethics and public policy analysis of the preservation of species question. Norton provides a critical overview of the range of thought on the issue, presents a new and comprehensive rationale for preservation of both species and ecosystems, and addresses policy issues."--Choice
