Format: Paperback
This is one of my favorite books. In contrast to its clunky predecessor _Ecotopia_, this book actually has a plot that, if a wee bit melodramatic, is fun and engaging. It's a bit chilling that the administration running the U.S. that the Ecotopians split off from in this book is actually less insane than the Cheney/Bush/Exxon government we have now. Ecotopia Emerging tells the story of how the Pacific Northwest secedes from the U.S. and establishes a sane lifestyle. This book does go a little far in glorifying the lifestyle it describes but if you can deal with that you'll probably enjoy it.

Callenbach's book does not come without flaws, but it was a fun read, with many practical ideas about constructing an ecologically friendly world. Not a work of literature per se, but an imaginative leap into a greener future, based squarely on contemporary problems that effect us all. Perhaps that is what I liked best about this book: Callenbach gives us a good look at things as they already exist. For that reason, I would even hesitate to call it a utopia. A well-grounded and researched work of ecological imagination. Worth your time.

This book is not one story but several. I love the way the author writes a liitle bit about each of his main characters and then bring together how they all contribute to the founding of his imaginary country ecotopia. I did notice that this book did not mention the war with the U.S. that Ecotopia itself described. Some of the characters were Lou Swift the inventer of a solar cell, Vera Alwen the political leader of the survivalist movement, the Cancer Commandos and their leaders Laura and Nils, Laura's daugther Marissa who also appears in Ecotopia, etc...

Here's a 'sane alternative' to consumer society - arm yourself, shoot it out with the cops, threaten Washington with nuclear terrorism, dump toxic chemicals on garden parties... why SURE!!! THAT will lead to harmonious secession from the Union! Something like it worked for the Old South in 1860, didn't it? Oh, wait a minute...
To call this ridiculous garbage naive is an understatement. Callenbach presents every discredited socialist dream of the past century, with a straight face, as panaceas to the 'dangers' eco-nazis fret about o' nights. The rest of us should be worrying about the eco-nazis...

Let's face it. Ernest Callenbach can't write his way out of a paper bag. That said, this book is still very much worth reading. Our world is spinning out of control. We are rushing headlong into a global disaster we may not recover from. Callenbach's book, for all its shortcomings, offers a sane alternative. Dig beneath the bad writing, the peurile story line and the california anarchisms and you will find profound ideas for living a sane and sustainable lifestyle.
