While many books have examined the broader topic of military conflict, most neglect to focus on damage military violence inflicts on regional—and global—ecosystems. The War and Environment Reader provides a critical analysis of the devastating consequences of "war on the environment" with perspectives drawn from a wide array of diverse voices and global perspectives. The contributors include scores of writers and activists, many with first-hand field experience of war's impacts on nature. Authors include: Medea Benjamin, Helen Caldicott, Marjoie Cohn, Daniel Ellsberg, Robert Fisk, Ann Jones, Michael Klare, Winona LaDuke, Jerry Mander, Margaret Mead, Vandana Shiva, David Swanson, Jody Williams and S. Brian Willson.
Gar Smith is editor emeritus of Earth Island Journal and co-founder of Environmentalists Against War. He lives in Berkeley, California, where he serves as director of the nonprofit Academic Publishing Inc. Smith is the author of Nuclear Roulette: The Truth About the Most Dangerous Energy Source on Earth.

Editorial Reviews

"This anthology is a much-needed volume of essays on the negative impact that the militarization of our world has on our planet—on the humans, animals, plants, oceans, lands, and air." —Ann Wright, former colonel, U.S. Army, former diplomat, antiwar activist
