About this book

Today there is a bewildering diversity of views on ecology and the natural environment. With more than a hundred ecological schools of thought and methodologies - and scientists, economists, religious leaders, activists, and others often taking completely different stances on the issues - how can we come to agreement to solve our toughest environmental problems? In response to this pressing need, "Integral Ecology" unites the valuable insights from multiple perspectives into a comprehensive theoretical framework - one that can be put to use right now. Real-life applications of integral ecology are examined, including work with marine fisheries in Hawaii, strategies of eco-activists to protect Canada's Great Bear Rainforest, and a study of community development in El Salvador.

Integral Ecology is a forward-looking book that invites compassionate proactive activism when dealing with the messes we've made. Time isn't on our side, but my optimism leads me to believe that if we embrace the authors' messages and put them into action using humility, compassion, heart, and love, we still have a chance to pull ourselves out of the many deep holes we're digging for ourselves, other animals, and ecosystems.
Marc Bekoff, PhD, author of The Emotional Lives of Animals
