About this book

Based on extensive interviews with a wide range of individuals both within and outside of the movement, Shabecoff elucidates the issues and problems confronting today's environmentalists and analyzes the movement's strengths and weaknesses. Viewing environmental threats as symptoms of flows in our society and its systems, he considers the urgent need for a broader, more inclusive environmentalism, and examines the role environmentalists can - and must - play in such areas as education and politics.
