Format: Paperback
In "Earth for Sale", social ecologist Brian Tokar brilliantly exposes the co-opting of mainstream environmental organizations by corporate interests,then outlines alternative strategies and theories for preserving the earth. Activists involved in environmental justice campaigns, organic agriculture and/or forest issues will glean much wisdom from this intelligent book. Importantly, like Murray Bookchin, Brian Tokar does not pit labor against the trees, but instead offers a holistic vision of ecological and economic solidarity, thus healing the rupture between human communities and the land.
