About this book

Presents a factual and balanced discussion of the various sides of the comtemporary debate over the US Endangered Species Act, along-side the author's clearly stated position: "We are overpopulating, polluting, and overdeveloping our environment, and as a species we have embarked on a crash course toward a sixth great extinction event on this earth".

Maintains a judicious balance... Experts will appreciate Burgess's sophisticated understanding of biodiversity, while concerned lay readers will enjoy her informed and uncluttered analysis. - Publishers Weekly; "A short but important read... Not a scientific book, but rather one of history, policy, and hope." - Journal of Mammalogy
