About this book

Translated by Volk,(C). Is ecology in the process of becoming the object of our contemporary passions, in the same way that Fascism was in the 1930s, or Communism under Stalin? In this book the author offers a penetrating critique of the `deep ecology' movement spreading through the United States, Germany, and France, arguing that unlike `democratic ecology' which seeks to protect the environment of human societies, in a pragmatic and reformist light, `deep ecology' is but a refuge for nostalgic counter-revolutionaries and leftist illusions, or in slightly different terms, man, in this guise, would cast aside all the gains of human autonomy since the Enlightenment.
