" The Nation "His (Bookchin's) newest book is perhaps the most ambitious; the topic and the scope are tremendous. But his energy and the vigor of his intelligence are commensurately broad. " Sierra "The Ecology of Freedom is an eloquent, erudite, and highly ambitious work...Whatever one's perspective, one is likely to find in it much material for worthwhile reflection on the human condition. For many who are disillusioned with the reigning traditions of materialism, idealism, and dualism...the work will be of major significance.
