In his remarkable new book Brian Morris examines the lives, works and philosophy of three key thinkers in the field of modern ecology. Lewis Mumford, Rene Dubos and Murray Bookchin, Morris argues, all made hugely important contributions to thinking in the field, and have all equally been unfairly overlooked or misunderstood by their contemporaries and successors.

In examining the concepts of organic or ecological humanism and social ecology as presented by Mumford, Dubros and Bookchin respectively, Professor Morris paves the way for fresh debate about the interaction between human beings and their enviornment, and, vitally, about what 'ecology', 'environmentalism' and 'conservation' actually mean and should seek to achieve in the years to come.
