Cramer provides a window into the world of radical environmentalism and the political process. He examines how deep ecology evolved, how its ideas influence our lives, and how it impacts our laws. The book begins with an overview of deep ecology and traces its history in American political thought. Cramer then looks at the tactics employed by radical environmentalists and the relationship formed between activists and their political counterparts. He explains the difference between what deep ecology ultimately wants and what it strives for on a daily basis. Federal environmental legislation and congressional testimony are analyzed for trends, and media coverage of radical environmentalism is also examined. Cramer provides the first comprehensive look at the impact of deep ecology and radical environmentalism on American environmental politics and law. This book will be invaluable to scholars and researchers of contemporary American politics and law, environmental studies, and the media.

?Spiked trees. Crossing the bow of whale hunting boats. Hanging banners from high-rise office buildings. These are the media-based images that much of the public perceives as fact when radical environmentalism makes a move. However, these is more to the radical environmentalism movement then these images suggest. Fortunately, Phillip Cramer has written an in-depth and well-conceived overview of deep ecology, radical environmentalism, and its impact on the crafting of environmental law and regulation....This book provides a well-balanced overview of the development of deep ecology and radical environmentalism. It could be useful required reading in many environmental history courses.?-Electronic Green Journal
