Required reading for those interested in a livable future, this collection explores the barriers that divide humanity from the natural world and reveals the damning results of that division. The Future of Naturelooks through our pervasive ecological crises to the root causes in human culture and offers a path beyond.
From local economies to our genetic heritage, and from environmental refugees to the nature of education, this essential book is both a compendium of the finest writing in Orion and a crucial guidebook for the twenty-first century activist.
