Présentation de l'éditeur

Originally published in 1972, Should Trees Have Standing? was a rallying point for the then burgeoning environmental movement, launching a worldwide debate on the basic nature of legal rights that reached the U.S. Supreme Court. Now, in the 35th anniversary edition of this remarkably influential book, Christopher D. Stone updates his original thesis and explores the impact his ideas have had on the courts, the academy, and society as a whole. At the heart of the book is an eminently sensible, legally sound, and compelling argument that the environment should be granted legal rights. For the new edition, Stone explores a variety of recent cases and current events--and related topics such as climate change and protecting the oceans--providing a thoughtful survey of the past and an insightful glimpse at the future of the environmental movement. This enduring work continues to serve as the definitive statement as to why trees, oceans, animals, and the environment as a whole should be bestowed with legal rights, so that the voiceless elements in nature are protected for future generations.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Who speaks for the environment? 21 juin 2010
Par Pamela Robinson - Publié sur
Published just two weeks before the Gulf Oil disaster, the updated "Should Trees Have Standing?: Law, Morality, and the Environment" takes on extra significance in arguing that the environment itself has an important place in the debate over how much human damage should be tolerated.

First published in 1972, author Christopher D. Stone's arguments have taken on new urgency, laying out a case that environmental issues can't be seen only from the human perspective and that trees, the land and the water are themselves worthy of rights. This edition updates his initial argument, noting that his original argument seemed over the top 38 years ago, but have won fans and legal support. As he notes, the argument that streams or forests have no standing because they don't speak has no meaning when corporations are granted rights alongside people. Part of the argument is that future generations of people have a right to a quality environment but Stone's argument runs deeper, explaining current case law and the tussle over the definition of legal standing. He also assesses the place and success and failure of environmentalism itself.

This is an honest look at the effects of his own argument, a good legal analysis of what the courts and individuals have decided to accept and a forward-looking assessment of what could come next. Students of environmental issues, lawyers and others will find this book a valuable tool in understanding the issues beyond the effects of poisoned water or destroyed mountain tops on humans and into a eco-centric view of what we should be doing.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Absolutely Critical Reading 10 septembre 2010
Par Thomas Linzey, Esq. - Publié sur
Christopher Stone clearly qualifies as one of the "fathers" of the rights of nature. This absolutely critical reading presents a clear, concise, and grounded vision for the foundation of a movement from treating nature as mere property to treating natural systems as entities with rights. Stone's work was recently part of the foundation and inspiration for the work of people in Ecuador to make the rights of nature a part of their new Constitution. An absolutely critical read for anyone who wonders why the current environmental "movement" is not achieving the sustainable planet that we all want and need.

A must read for everyone who wants to change the rules of the game to a system in which nature's rights are recognized and enforced.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 SHOULD TREES HAVE A STANDING. 30 novembre 2012
Par LILIANA DONES - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book is very helpful to have if you are a community activist interested in saving trees and maintaining the canopy of your neighborhood and city. It is not only informative, and makes an excellent argument toward the rights of trees, but it is a particularly good thing to wave about at City of Miami Historic Preservation Board hearings where we regularly go to appeal tree removals.

I purchased this in 1972 at the height of Mineral King, a Forest Service - Disney proposal in the southern Sierra Nevada. It has been in my thoughts and understanding ever since (1972 - 2014, 42 years). The arguments are solid, but those who worship unlimited growth ("Cornucopians") still subscribe to "more is better", and refuse to recognize limits or carrying capacity.
