Product description


...a confirmation of his [Bookchin's] status as a penetrating critic not only of the ways in which humankind is destroying itself, but of the ethical imperative to live better. --The Village Voice

Elegantly written, and recommended for a wide audience. --Library Journal

The Ecology of Freedom is an eloquent, erudite, and highly ambitious work... Whatever one's perspective, one is likely to find in it much material for worthwhile reflection on the human condition. For many who are disillusioned with the reigning traditions of materialism, idealism, and dualism...the work will be of major significance. --Telos


"The Ecology of Freedom" is indispensable reading for anyone who's tired of living in a world where everything, and everyone, is an exploitable resource. Murray Bookchin uses an inspired synthesis of ecology, anthropology, philosophy and political theory to trace our society's conflicting legacies of freedom and domination, from the first emergence of human culture to today's global capitalism. This title expounds on the proposition that "the very notion of the domination of nature by man stems from the very real domination of human by human" and suggests that our nightmare will continue until hierarchy is dissolved and human beings develop more sane, sustainable and egalitarian social structures.
