Reclaiming Nature: Environmental Justice and Ecological Restoration

Link to purchase book

Reclaiming Nature offers a hopeful new vision of the relationship between people and nature. The contributors to this volume chart a course between denial and despair over world’s mounting environmental problems. They realize that human activities can have positive impacts on nature’s wealth as well as negative ones. The crucial question is how we can tip the balance in favor of the positive. In the form of essays by well-known economists, environmentalists, and activists, this book offers readers hope for a better tomorrow, inspired by examples of people across the world who are building natural assets by adding value, democratizing access, capturing benefits, and defending the commons.
