Overview

Published to mark the 25th anniversary of Friends of the Earth, Promising the Earth presents a vivid account of the experiences, achievements and expectations of Britain's first environmental pressure group. It reveals, for the first time, the inside story of pioneering environmental campaigns - from the first anti-whaling and fur trade campaigns of the early 1970s to the demonstrations at Windscale and Sellafield and the most recent anti-road protests at Twyford Down and Newbury. At a time when environmental groups worldwide are taking stock after the Rio Earth Summit, Promising the Earth offers important lessons for green campaigners around the world as they face the challenges of the new millennium.
