About this book

Offers a much needed, balanced appraisal of the highly influential grouping of philosophers. Radical ecology's history, principles, goals, and limitations are examined in depth through an analysis of the three major branches - deep ecology, social ecology, and ecofeminism. An important work: as well as cogent analysis, radical ecology is given a firm sense of historical place.
