Editorial Reviews

?This anthology originated in a conference on the subject held at the University of Calgary.... Several scientific, social-scientific, and legal perspectives are brought to bear on the subject in a series of interesting and worthwhile essays. Sections include Social Movements; The Legal Response; The Media, Technology and the Environment; and Public Policy, Determinism, and Change. The stustantive content is often related to Canadian cases, a refreshing change from the usual American bias in such collections.... Many pages of the book are devoted to environmental degradation as a consequence of the exploitation of forest lands, mining resources, and undersea oil. Other papers deal with appropriate technology and problem of the social and political determination of technological paths.... The work is a useful addition to library collections on environmentalism and technology assessment.?-Choice
