Beschreibung:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: This provocative book challenges basic assumptions about the environmental movement's current efforts to preserve wilderness. A longtime environmental activist & author, William Ashworth grew frustrated with the movement &, in light of new scientific thinking, began to reevaluate its past achievements. In The Left Hand of Eden, Ashworth boldly champions the abandonment of wilderness preservation. Ashworth argues that wilderness preservation is a form of separation from the land &, as such, is as harmful to nature as logging or mining. "The lock-it-all-up mentality is as faulty as the cut-it-all-down mentality; preservation destroys integration with the biosphere as thoroughly as clearcuts do," he writes. Treating nature as something "other"-whether to preserve it or destroy it-creates a false dichotomy, from which all modern environmental battles arise: use versus preservation, civilization versus wilderness. It's a rhetoric that fails to recognize that all things on earth are united under the laws of nature. In a series of graceful & often moving nature essays, Ashworth shows that proper care for the land requires not just use or reverence, but use with reverence. "Careful use of resources is the key to preserving them," he writes. "It not only works: it is the only thing that ever has." The Left Hand of Eden is an important & original contribution to a growing debate within the environmental community. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: Book by Ashworth, William

From Publishers Weekly: In a jolting about-face, Ashworth, an environmentalist for three decades who led a campaign to save the spotted owl from loggers, argues that the wilderness-preservation concept is fundamentally flawed and should be abandoned. Practicing what he now preaches, Ashworth resigned from his position in the Sierra Club in 1996 to protest its new policy opposing all harvest of timber from public lands. He contends that wilderness preserves and parks, by reinforcing our separateness from nature and by fostering the illusion that we're doing something constructive, actually encourage exploitation and wanton misuse of nonprotected lands. Instead of setting up boundaries, Ashworth advocates responsible stewardship: "We must make ways to meet the needs of all of us from the same land base," he urges, though how this is to be accomplished is not clearly delineated in his impassioned essays. While Ashworth "strongly supports continuance" of campaigns to preserve endangered species like the bald eagle in his native Oregon or the whooping crane, he concludes that "we have neither the criteria nor the right to judge" which species should be saved from extinction. Therefore, he proposes, we should let some species slide gracefully into oblivion, so long as we do not fragment or destroy their habitats. Some readers will find that Ashworth is injecting a healthy dose of realism and balance into environmental debates; others will view his current stance as profoundly wrongheaded. In any case, the essays slamming environmental activism often seem to work at cross-purposes with other lyrical, intense essays in which AshworthAbasking in a ponderosa pine forest in California or tracking an elusive bird on North Carolina's Cape HatterasAstresses the complex interdependencies of plants and animals that make up fragile ecosystems.
