Two of the essays in this volume deal with the ideas of the 'father' of Deep Ecology, the octagenarian Norwegian philosopher Arne Naess: one favourably, the other critically. The third essay is a full-frontal attack on Murray Bookchin, one of the leading exponents of Social Ecology. And Murray Bookchin at our invitation comments on these three contributions with an essay on Deep Ecology, Anarchosyndicalism and the Future of Anarchist Thought.
The first and last contributions to this volume are more down to earth essays. Can Life Survive? deals with modern man's assault on our soil and our natural resources, many of which are irresplaceable. And in his History of the Apple, the author demonstrates how capitalism - production for profit - has dealt a mortal blow to the once succulent apple: from 3000 varieties at one time to today's international, tasteless Golden Delicious!
