About this book

Tanasescu examines the rights of nature in terms of its constituent parts. Besides offering a thorough theoretical grounding, the book gives a first detailed overview of the actual cases of rights for nature so far. This is the first comprehensive treatment of the rights of nature to date, both analytically and in terms of actual cases.

Reviews

'This book opens up new and fascinating territory: it is the first detailed analysis of the idea and legal reality of 'the rights of nature'. What makes it even more interesting is that Tanasescu offers an exceptionally fruitful blend of precise conceptual analysis and thorough empirical research. Not to mention that it is simply a very pleasant read.' - M.L.J. Wissenburg, Radboud University, The Netherlands

'Tanasescu's insightful new book brings together crucial debates around representation, rights and nature, in order to offer a highly innovative and provocative set of arguments on what it can mean to speak for nature. Grounded in excellent case studies, the book navigates the complexities of the rights of nature in a style that is always clear and compelling.'

- Michael Saward, Warwick University, UK
