Work in Progress

David Ross Brower, Author Peregrine Smith Books $21.95 (348p) ISBN 978-0-87905-374-1
Companion to For Earth's Sake , this autobiographical volume by a leading environmentalist takes us through the formative years of Sierra Club Books, the founding of Friends of the Earth and the Earth Island Institute. Recounting environmental battles of the last 30 years, Brower here includes his introductions to books and pamphlets, speeches and other previously published writings. He discusses nuclear energy, genetic engineering, the IRS (one of the worst threats to the environment, he contends, is the present interpretation of the tax laws) and concludes with a blueprint for a ``green century.'' Readers who have followed Brower's career will be delighted that he remains as feisty as ever; new readers will find an imposing history of environmental activism along with guidelines for the preservation of our planet.
