A Different Kind of Country

Front Cover
"The book ranges from cities - the need for building diversity into them - to the values of wilderness, undisturbed lands, natural communities. It is critical of existing practices, from the management of wild lands to the renewal of cities, and asks that we consider more carefully both the ecological principles that govern the operations of the environment and the human values that we are tring to accommodate ... He points out that "we are a small, rich minority in a world of poverty. That benefits of technology flow to few.""--Jacket.
