About this book

Controversial expose of the anti-environmental movement. Tracing the rise of the backlash from the Wise Use movement in the USA, Rowell (an Environmental Consultant to Greenpeace) reveals its rapid spread worldwide, focussing on recent debacles such as the anti-roads movement in the UK, Brent Spar and marine resource issues in Europe and South-East Asia. |
` What a fabulous book! Tens of thousands of active environmentally concerned people will in their hearts thank the author for having pinned down organisations and people who are opposing their endeavours. This is a source book we sorely need to strengthen the anti-backlash campaigns and reveal the global character of the anti-Green movement.' Arne Naess
