By D. Mezick on July 23, 2014
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The author has written an academic treatise that deals with social injustice. The fact that an oppressed people forced to labor in the fields and who endure the horrors of slavery might not see environmental thought as a priority is not a surprise. The fact that some have and are beginning to is heartening. She uses many words to state the obvious and say very little that is enlightening.
