From the Publisher:
In EcoMind, Frances Moore Lappé?a giant of the environmental movement?confronts accepted wisdom of environmentalism. Drawing on the latest research from anthropology to neuroscience and her own field experience, she argues that the biggest challenge to human survival isn?t our fossil fuel dependency, melting glaciers, or other calamities. Rather, it?s our faulty way of thinking about these environmental crises that robs us of power. Lappé dismantles seven common ?thought traps??from limits to growth to the failings of democracy? that belie what we now know about nature, including our own, and offers contrasting ?thought leaps? that reveal our hidden power.Argues that the biggest challenge to survival is faulty thinking about the environmental crises that are affecting the planet and offers "thought leap" that will transform one's eco-mind.
Like her Diet for a Small Planet classic, EcoMind is challenging, controversial and empowering.
If anyone embodies the "?think globally, act locally" philosophy of the environmental movement, it is Frances Moore Lappé, who has been in the forefront of the discussion since the publication of her groundbreaking classic, DIET FOR A SMALL PLANET in 1971. Lappe has worked tirelessly to promote a greater awareness of the key issues of democracy--poverty, food distribution, and corporate greed. Through the Small Planet Institute, she and her colleagues have assiduously promoted new ideas and discussion, generated money, and established activities to make the world a better place. Lappé has received speaking engagements from numerous universities and written many articles in both the print media and on websites such as AlterNet and the Huffington Post. In 2008, her book GETTING A GRIP addressed the need to "fight our core assumptions" about power and politics, and to take local actions for a better world.
