Green Rage: Radical Environmentalism and the Unmaking of Civilization Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this impassioned defense of radical environmentalism, Manes questions the very legitimacy of humanity's domination of nature, and takes readers inside the radical environmental movement to explain its controversial tactics and its worldwide impact. **Lightning Print On Demand Title

Synopsis:

Radical environmental groups throughout the world, militantly committed to defending the ecology, are growing in size and influence. In this country, activists engage in ecological civil disobedience and ecotage-- the sabotaging of equipment to prevent ecological damage-- in the struggle to preserve wilderness lands. These ecoteurs have gone beyond traditional conservation concerns to a new philosophy-- Deep Ecology, or biocentrism-- that calls into question not only the wisdom, but the legitimacy of humanity's domination of nature. In Green Rage, Christopher Manes has written a brilliant defense of radical environmentalism, challenging the ethics of modern industrial society and asserting the right of the natural world to blossom, evolve, and exist for its own sake.
