Throughout the 1990s, activists, corporations, and government officials 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 shaped the conflicts of that era and beyond, including their implications for a renewed ecological movement for the twenty-first century.
"Earth for Sale is a sharp-tongued critique of the corporate greed and government collaboration that have created our environmental crisis. And it delivers a rousing call for grassroots action, believing that only a democratic environmentalism can save us all."—Howard Zinn
"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
