David W. Orr, Oberlin College, author of Down to the Wire
A superb survey of the most important concept of the 21st century. Thoughtful, cogent, and essential reading.


EH.Net Caradonna rapidly traces a thread through centuries of thinkers and political movements. Along the way he ably documents the fact that interest in environmental quality has grown over the last three centuries and that government has as often been used to undermine environmental quality as to support it.
