Description of Earth for Sale.

Since the early 1990s, activists, corporations, and government officials have battled for the heart and soul of the environmental movement. In Earth for Sale, Brian Tokar examines the economic issues, political divisions, and worldviews that have shaped this conflict, and their implications for a renewed ecological movement for the twenty-first century.

"Finally, in one accessible book, activists can be brought up to date on the last thirty years of mainstream environmentalism, the 'wise use' backlash, and the many grassroots movements for social and ecological justice."—Greta Gaard, University of Minnesota 

"Illuminating ... Earth for Sale is a fantastic primer for those looking for some historical perspectives on the environmental movement. Well-written and thoroughly researched ... Earth for Sale is a clarion call for nothing short of an ecological revolution."—The Ecologist
