Is ecological sabotage a prank or terrorism? Do women hold the key to rethinking environmentalism? Are ecoactivists "Goliaths of Doom"? Can radical and mainstream ecologists find common ground? The readings in this book explore these and many other questions challenging conventional thinking about our relationship to the environment. Unique among books on environmental ethics, this anthology deals with themes of deep ecology, ecofeminism, and environmental activism - considered radical stands by most environmental moderates. On a philosophical level, the selections present thought-provoking responses to issues such as our ethical obligations to each other and nonhuman parts of nature, the personal and social responsibilities of men and women to each other, and proper personal and social reactions to the degradation of nature. As concrete calls to action, especially in the case of ecotage, exponents of radical environmentalism often advocate measures more moderate environmentalists find ethically unacceptable (both points of view are presented in this collection). However, as the editor of this provocative anthology states, " ... understanding this movement can help 'moderates' sharpen their resolve to do more about environmental problems and find solutions which will check the relentless consumption of wild nature."
