Críticas:

"Scarce breaks new ground in dealing with animal rights and animal liberation groups and provides more detailed discussion of disruptive eco-tactics." -CHOICE Magazine "A good and honest book that tells about an important social movement." -San Francisco Chronicle "It may be hard for many to understand those who are willing to risk their lives in defense of the planet, but this book is excellent in explaining who they are and what motivates them... Although the intensity and extremist tactics of the 'eco-warriors' may be off-putting, Scarce suggests that in the end we may owe thanks for our very survival to these people." -Library Journal "[T]his is a valuable introduction to the 'radical' environmentalists-those whose despair over the deterioration of the planet has moved them to take militant and sometimes violent action." -The Progressive "Rik Scarce examines the controversial world of radical environmentalism, providing a sympathetic and fascinating look inside the hearts and minds of those who would meld Gandhi with King Ludd." -New York Times Book Review "This book should come with a label: 'Warning! Potent Ideas at Work.' Only the most depraved cynic could complete this reading and remain unaffected." -Bloomsbury Review

Reseña del editor:

Eco-Warriors was the first in-depth look at the people, actions, history and 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 told 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 contempt of court for refusing to divulge 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 all 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.
