Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This collection of essays purports to offer an alternative vision of the state of the global environment to that presented by Vice President Al Gore in his best-selling Earth in the Balance (LJ 1/92), but in large part the book fails to deliver on its promise. Inevitably with a collection of this nature, the constituent essays are of uneven quality. The strongest entries focus on the economics of Gore's solutions and offer market-based alternatives. The contributions by Robert Hahn (American Enterprise Institute) and Gus di Zerega (Foundation for Research on Economics and the Environment) are noteworthy, with di Zerega's easily the most provocative in the book. Many of the other essays offer weak, unsubstantiated attacks on Gore's work and make the entire book much less than the sum of its parts. For most libraries, this will be a marginal purchase.-Randy Dykhuis, OCLC, Dublin, Ohio
