Becoming Good Ancestors

How We Balance Nature, Community, and Technology

David Ehrenfeld

  • The book is about the burning conservation issues of the day and what to do about them. It offers serious and thoughtful discussion, is cast in pro-active and positive terms, and is engagingly written.
  • More depth, grade, critical thinking represented and prompted here than in 99% of the other books used in Environmental Studies, Conservation Biology, and Sustainability Science graduate and undergraduate courses.
  • A gifted 'big picture' thinker, Ehrenfeld's words span politics, ecology, and cultural critique and give us tools to answer the harder environmental questions ourselves.
