Published in 1990, ECO-Warriors was the first in-depth look at the people, the actions, the history and the philosophies behind the "radical" environmental movement. Focusing on the work of Earth First!, Seashepherds, Greenpeace, and the Animal Liberation Front, among other, Rik Scarce told exciting and sometimes frightening tales of front-line warriors defending on Earth they see as being in environmental peril. Scarce was jailed for contempt of court for refusing to divulge his sources to prosecutors anxious to thwart these groups' activities. In this updated edition, Scarce brings the trajectory of this movement up to date and provides current resources for those who wish to learn more. Literate, captivating, and informative, this is an ideal volume for classes on environmentalism, social movements, or contemporary politics.
