Overview

Arguing that current conflicts in the war on terrorism are doing tremendous damage to future generations, this timely analysis draws on the work of nonviolent leaders like Gandhi to provide alternatives to responding to increased levels of fear and anxiety with violence. Seizing on the surprising example of Northwest salmon as a paradigm, contemporary clashes like the "War on Terror" are dissected with an eye toward the "political ecosystems" they endanger. Also included is a meditation on what citizens can do to change their own "political ecosystems" by considering the long-term political and ecological effects of the even the smallest decisions.

Author Biography: Chris Maser has written 20 books, dealing with social-environmental sustainability including The Forest Primeval and Reuniting Economy and Ecology in Sustainable Development. He lives in Corvallis, Oregon.
