There are surely better anthologies out there now than this one from '93. Or I really hope so. A few all right essays in the middle, but most of the pieces were redundant even as they addressed different topics (at one point I thought, 'perhaps I should just be reading Carolyn Merchant rather than ten different pieces quoting Carolyn Merchant...')

For someone who hasn't read anything on ecofeminism before, though, it would probably be useful.

An excellent collection of essays addressing ecofeminism by examining the relationships of human beings with each other, with their environment and with animals. The text isn't one-sided: it also addressed the limitaions of ecofeminism. Janis Birkeland's essay in the text does an excellent job of serving as a primer on the subject of ecofeminism, and presents us with a term I love: "Manstream Theory," which addresses patriarchy.

Recommended.

This is a must-have reference book for all vegan feminists/ecofeminists/intersectional vegans. Encompassing many of the leading ecofeminist critiques, the big shots of ecofeminist theory are present here. Unlike other ecofeminist publications, this volume features many leading vegan feminists and Nonhuman Animals are nearly always included. This is a primarily theoretical contribution, considering what ecofeminism means and how it fits in the larger field of environmental ethics. Birkeland's "Ec ...more
