1994 reprint. Leiss argues that our current global predicaments are due to deeply rooted attitudes towards nature. He traces the origins of this development and social consequences of the idea of the domination of nature. He also puts forward a new approach - the liberation of nature from man's mastery. This book was first originally published in 1972 as part of the first wave of interest in environmental issues. Its theories clearly have much relevance today.
Leiss weaves a complex and frequently scintillating theme that sometimes poses old questions in new ways and also raises new questions that might provoke a measure of lucidity in a discussion, now deeply obfuscated. Richard J. Neuhaus, The Annals of the American Academy. "A stimulating new perspective on a matter of considerable academic as well as public concern." T.J. Cartwright, Canadian Journal of Political Science.
