'This long awaited work is an updated and thoroughly revised translation of Okologi, Samfunn og Livsstil in Norwegian. Naess is the acknowledged founder of 'deep ecology' and a respected authority in semantics, the philosophy of science and the thinking of Spinoza and Ghandi. This book is both a philosophical primer and a handbook on strategy and tactics for thoughtful environmentalists.' Trends in Ecology and Evolution 'I would add Naess' book to that very short list of works in environmental philosophy that speak to us from the depths of a life well and thoughtfully lived, a life which has engendered wisdom and with it care, responsiveness, and a sense of responsibility to the earth.' Jim Cheney '... this book is understandable even for the uninitiated, and practical for anyone wanting to reduce their adverse impacts on the Earth.' John Davis, Earth First! Journal
