About this book

&i;` As is to be expected of someone of Eckersley's experience and standing, these discussions, and the detailed expositions of `deep ecological' positions that accompany them are excellent ... This is not a dispassionate book: Eckersley has political points to make, and she makes them forcefully ... as an ecocentric interrogation of the traditional left this book is unsurpassed.'&o; THES
