About this book

A compelling book about ethics and choices, Nature Wars shows us the difference between protecting ourselves from real pests and poisoning ourselves and the planet. Winston selects numerous case studies and considers diverse instances of past pest management that reveal a consistent pattern of mistakes and problems-and suggests realistic, workable proposals for reducing pesticide use. It turns us from our war on nature to our task as stewards of the environment.

If the dangers are well known and legislators are prepared to regulate the release of chemicals into the environment, is there still a problem? Mark Winston, in his book "Nature Wars, " firmly believes there is...I recommend it to all those concerned with green issues, be they scientist, student or layman.--Graham Elmes "Times Higher Education [UK]Supplement "
