About this book

A recent history replete with compromise and capitulation has pushed a once promising and effective political movement to the brink of irrelavance, argues Dowie. This ambitious book illustrates the undeniable triumphs and quite unnecessary failures.

Losing Ground is an ambitious and brave book. Mr. Dowie has marshaled an exceptionally broad array of facts and produced a provocative explanation for why a once vibrant social movement is flagging...one of the truly important books on a genuinely American social movement. --Keith Schneider, New York Times Book Review "Perhaps the most interesting environmental book published yet this year." --The Washington Times
