Towards a credible environmental ethics for Africa: A Tanzanian perspective, Aidan G. Msafiri : book review

Volume 77, Issue 2

Rev. Dr. Aiden G. Msafiri presents a compelling perspective on issues of environmental ethics which are not only prominent in the industrialised Western world, but also in Africa and in Tanzania - the latter being the specific focus of the work. The book illustrates the unique role that African Christian eco-ethics and theology may play in addressing and curbing the growing ecological crisis in Tanzania. Msafiri's argument is not only pertinent for Tanzania, however; it is also applicable to the broader African context and to other non-African developing countries. He aims to engage various issues in the environmental development of such countries by providing a new paradigm, one that integrates traditional ethics approaches and theological perspectives.
