Eco-Warriors, first published in 1990, was the first in-depth look at the people, the actions, the history and the philosophies behind the "radical" environmental movement.
Focusing on the work of Earth First!, the Sea Shepherds, Greenpeace, and the Animal Liberation Front, among others, Rik Scarce tells exciting and sometimes frightening tales of front-line warriors defending an Earth they see as being in environmental peril.
While continuing to study these movements as a Ph.D. student, Scarce was jailed for his sources to prosecutors eager to thwart these groups' activities. In this updated edition, Scarce brings the trajectory of this movement up to date - including material on the Earth Liberation Front - and provides current resources for those who wish to learn more about one of the most dynamic and confrontational political movements of our time.
Literate, captivating and informative, this is also an ideal volume for classes on environmentalism, social movements, or contemporary politics.
