Current Affairs

Powerful, impassioned essays on living and being in the world, from the bestselling author of The End of Nature and Deep EconomyFor a generation, Bill McKibben has been among America's most impassioned and beloved writers on our relationship to our world and our environment. His groundbreaking book on climate change, The End of Nature, is considered "as important as Rachel Carson's classic Silent Spring"* and Deep Economy, his "deeply thoughtful and mind-expanding"** exploration of globalization, helped awaken and fuel a movement to restore local economies.Now, for the first time, the best of McKibben's essays--fiery, magical, and infused with his uniquely soulful investigations of modern life--are collected in a single volume. Whether meditating on today's golden age in radio, the natural place of biting black flies in our lives, or the patriotism of a grandmother fighting to get corporate money out of politics, McKibben inspires us to become better caretakers of the Earth--and of one another.*The Plain Dealer (Cleveland )**Michael Pollan
