Publication of this anthology celebrates the marriage of the ecology, radical feminist, and feminist spirituality movements. Its 13 contributors range from the director of the Research Foundation for Science and Ecology in Dahra Dun, India (Vandana Shiva) to American Indian activist/poet/scholar Paula Gunn Allen, with appearances in between from such well-known feminists as Carolyn Merchant, Carol Christ, Susan Griffin, etc. They here consider the history of ecofeminism, its differentiation from such other philosophical positions as Deep Ecology, the issues it addresses, and the approaches it suggests for dealing with current ecological crises. These are serious, even scholarly discussions, yet they remain readable and compelling, appealing to both men and women to promote new values which will affirm and enhance the Earth. Highly recommended.
