Leading contributors from a broad range of disciplines introduce this exciting new concept as a framework for thinking about indigenous peoples, local knowledge, globalization, science, global environmental issues, modern society, conservation, history, education and restoration. Bioregionalism's emphasis on place and community radically changes the way we confront human and ecological issues.

Review

'This is an extremely well written and put together anthology' - Environmental Ethics, Winter 2001

'Provides as extremely useful and very readable introduction to the field of bioregionalism, and at the same time it relates bioregionalism to a number of important issues and challenges of our time. It will be of interest to more than just professed bioregionalists, and its academic readership will be wide-ranging in numerous disciplines.' - Ecumene

4.0 out of 5 stars Exploring an ecocentric ecosophy Sept. 12 2000
By Dr Jonathan Ball - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
'Bioregionalism' is a collection of chapters written by different authors and includes many of the principal names in the field of bioregionalism. It rates four stars because it is a good reflection of some of the more credible bioregionalist literature. It fails to get the fifth star because the book lacks chapters by either Peter Berg or Kirkpatric Sale, who are arguably two of the most prominant and influential writers contributing to bioregionalist thought. The rating reflects that this book is very readable and would give somebody who is unfamiliar with bioregionalism a good overview of the subject while providing plenty more for a more knowledgable reader. The rating does not reflect whether the subject of bioregionalism is sound or 'worthy' and that must be left up to the individual reader. If read alongside authors such as Arne Naes, this book presents a stimulating alternative philosophy.
