Overview

On our side, a vast arsenal of chemical pesticides. On their side? They don't have a side, the pests who must do nature's bidding. This is our war, and should we win it, ours would be a sorry planet. With disturbing news from the front, Nature Wars sounds the alarm against our dangerous tactics for controlling the pests that are an annoying but integral part of our world.

Thirty years after Silent Spring woke us to the devastation wrought by DDT, chemical pesticides are as pervasive as ever, deployed at a rate of 4 pounds a year for every man, woman, and child in this country. This ongoing commitment to pesticides, Mark Winston argues, reflects our sense of place in nature: embattled, beleaguered, driven to aggression. His book, as sensible as it is wise, seeks to change this mindset, to show how a more measured and discriminating approach to pests, one based on management rather than eradication, might serve us and the natural world far better than our ill-fated all-out war.

Winston backs up this approach with a full battery of case studies that take us from lawns and kitchens to farms and orchards, from insects and weeds to rats and coyotes. Here we see the complex political, biological, economic, social, and personal interactions that lie behind each pest management decision. Against this background Winston considers diverse instances of past pest management that reveal a consistent pattern of mistakes and problems--and lead to realistic, workable proposals for reducing pesticide use.

A compelling book about ethics and choices, Nature Wars shows us the difference between protecting ourselves from real pests and poisoning ourselves and the planet. It turns us from our war on nature to our task as stewards of the environment.

Winston...brings an unusually reasonable and compassionate voice to a debate usually swarming with harangues...Winston understands the impulse [to turn to powerful chemicals to control pests], but he also understands that the consequences can be harmful and surprising...Nature Wars leaves room for hope by setting an example of reasonableness...He cuts through hysteria, spotlighting the real threats of genetically engineered plants...[and] recommends tolerance toward the roach...If people would only listen to voices like Winston's, our world would be safer for organisms in their natural places—and even for pests like us.
— Polly Shulman

E.S.C. Bulletin

In his book Nature Wars, Mark Winston, a full Professor of Biological Sciences at Simon Fraser University, has managed to make the topic of pest management fascinating even to those not working in the field. It is well researched, probing, and accessible…Winston hits all the relevant scientific points and his folksy style presents them in language that anyone can understand.
— Barbara Kukan

Nature

Nature Wars is an effective primer for the general reader on our struggles against insects and other pests...In an articulate and accessible writing style, Winston explains the pesticide dilemma, the threat that our reliance on synthetic pesticides poses both to human health and safety and to the preservation of what is left of the natural environment...Winston's discussion of these controversial issues, and the conflict between humans and pests, will be helpful to anyone who hopes to develop an informed opinion about our continuing war with nature.
— Lawrence M. Hanks

Chicago Tribune
A highly readable history of pest control, from chemical sprays to genetically altered plants.
Boston Globe

Winston is probing and thoughtful, whether he is exploring what he contends was an unwarranted public outcry over a 1992 spraying in Vancouver of the biological control Bacillus thuringiensis to thwart a gypsy-moth invasion, or the likelihood that the public will view as a failure the ongoing effort in the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia to stop the spread of codling moths (an apple pest) by releasing sterile male moths.
— Robert Braile

Times Literary Supplement [UK]

Humans continue to deploy weapons of mass destruction against other creatures of this planet, namely the insects and bugs that consume our crops. No matter what we do, we seem unable to eradicate them, and there are now those who believe that this fifty-year onslaught is beginning to rebound on us. Mark Winston, author of Nature Wars, is one of them. His book is...interesting...a good historical approach to the subject...[and] makes fascinating and well-balanced reading.

— John Emsley

Times Higher Education [UK]Supplement

If the dangers are well known and legislators are prepared to regulate the release of chemicals into the environment, is there still a problem? Mark Winston, in his book Nature Wars, firmly believes there is...I recommend it to all those concerned with green issues, be they scientist, student or layman.

— Graham Elmes

The Independent [UK]
Mark Winston's study of pest-control regimes and his conclusion that we should go easier on pests...is a compelling argument and certainly lively.

— Michael McCarthy

Tree [UK]

[Nature Wars] is an extremely coherent and concise statement of progressive thinking on how to manage agricultural pests...it positively exudes good sense and rationality. I strongly recommend it to anyone who has thought twice about biting into a shiny apple on a supermarket shelf...Winston has thought hard about pest management, and believes passionately that it can be improved. This is an excellent book and should be very widely read.

— H.C.J. Godfray

BBC Wildlife Magazine [UK]

In this well-written, up-to-date account of the history of pest-control technology, Mark Winston describes how successful alternative methods can be...If we are to realise the goal of controlling pests without poisoning ourselves or the wildlife around us, we need to match their evolutionary adaptability with ingenuity in a diversity of control measures.

— Phil Gates

European Business Report
In Nature Wars Professor Winston brilliantly strips away the media hype to unveil issues of significance such as the indiscriminate and wanton destruction of thousands of insects and arthropod species, seemingly for our benefit. With his background in biological sciences, he builds up a strong case as to why we need to protect these creatures for our own sake.
Globe and Mail [Toronto]

[An] erudite and fascinating book...Before telling some very good tales about multiplying moths, gnawing rates and invading coyotes, Winston sets down a few key economic facts...[And] the lesson here, says Winston, reads like a Greek tragedy: The more modern agriculture removes biodiversity from the land, the more susceptible it becomes to pests, which ultimately means more pesticides. This deadly cycle explains why the promise of biological controls of the use of natural predators has remained just that, a promise.
— Andrew Nikiforuk,

Science News
With a gift for turning the arcane into amusing prose, Winston explains how natural pheromones, sterilization strategies, and insect predators are better alternatives for pest control.
Earth Matters [UK]

Mark Winston is that rare person: an entomologist (studier of insects) who, to judge from Nature Wars, would make a charming and entertaining dinner party guest. In Nature Wars, short listed for last year's BP Natural World book award, he shows how dependence on chemical pesticides, and unrealistic consumer standards for bug-free houses and gardens, have contributed to massive over-use of dangerous chemicals.
— Andy Neather

Resurgence [UK]

Mark Winston is writing about a population that has lost its perception of itself as a species amongst other species, enjoys horror movies about giant insects, killer bees or human-insect transformations and can no longer see itself as part of a global life-cycle. He offers some thoughtful and moderate views on the way forward...It is a most readable book, a work of real scholarship and provides insights into social history and the phenomena of public opinion as well as the fascinating survey of pest-management.
— Brigitte Norland

Environmental Ethics

Mark Winston's Nature Wars provides a useful, sane, and easily accessible discussion about one of the most durable of environmental problems: pest control...Nature Wars provides a very useful summary of the biological complexities of pesticides and their alternatives.

— John H. Perkins

American Biology Teacher
Winston makes a strong case for pest management versus our ill-fated attempts at pest eradication. He supports his approach with a battery of case histories illustrating the complex political, biological, economic, social and personal interactions that lie behind each pest management decision...Winston also discusses the problems arising from the evolution of pesticide-resistant populations of target pests, the impact of control measures on non-target organisms, the tendency of consumers to overreact to the sight of a single cockroach or a blemished fruit, and the attitude that we have a divine right to manipulate nature to shape a world of human design.
Booklist

Winston here enlightens those who bewail the massive use of chemical insecticides outdoors—and indoors reach for bug spray at first sight of a creepy crawly. Writing for a general, not technical, reader, Winston descants on campaigns against rats and roaches, then discusses the main strategies for 'naturally' controlling agricultural pests...A balanced overview.

— Gilbert Taylor

Human and Wild: True Stories of Living Lightly Author of Hope
Before you reach for the can of Raid, reach for this book. Mark Winston explains why our hopes of total victory in the war against pests are as mistaken as they are futile, and he provides a measured dose of common sense that should prevent many a hasty attack.

Kirkus Reviews
Call it a long shot, a miracle even, but Winston (The Biology of the Honey Bee, not reviewed) manages to shape the art and science of pest management into a fascinating subject.

Pests eat our homes and crops and clothes, they transmit disease, they plague our skin, hair, and digestive tracts. They have bugged us from day one: The ancient Syrians exorcised scorpions from Antioch, Sumerians deployed elemental sulphur to control mites, and the Romans drained swamps to oust mosquitoes and their ilk. Today chemicals—pesticides, herbicides, fungicides—rule in humankind's "modern war against nature," in which insects are a prime enemy. And, Winston asserts, "it is time to reconsider the terms of engagement." Why? Because chemicals attack a pest's nervous system, which (unfortunately) resembles our own rather closely. The consequences: The author cites one million cases, worldwide, of human pesticide poisoning annually (and 20,000 fatalities among those). Moreover, pest resistance to chemicals is growing even as the chemicals continue to decimate natural predator populations essential to the earth's balance. Winston suggests various remedies for our faulty attitudes and strategies. He challenges and critiques our assumptions about pests, too: Does that single cockroach scuttling around the kitchen really demand an application of Malathion, or does our paranoia deserve some doctoring? As alternatives to dangerous chemical weapons, he proposes biologically based programs that consider (and benignly maneuver) the facts of insect ecology and behavior: sterile insect release, pheromone spraying, and genetic engineering. Winston recommends that chemical pesticides can be used, but only as a last resort; that pest management should indeed manage—but not eradicate—pests; and that perhaps only the most damaging pests should be managed at all.

Like a new Rachel Carson for the new millennium, Winston delivers a nontoxic dose of much-needed common sense.
