It is against the effort to sell a reactionary economic, political and social agenda dressed up as concern for and protection of the environment. This book demonstrates that what we call environmentalism is an expression of the world view of segments of the worlds upper class. When they talk to us about pollution, resource scarcity, and overpopulation, they are actually talking about their own fears, hatreds, and ambitions. Whatever label we affix to todays environmentalism, it is certain that it carries over into the 21st century the same kinds of reactionary, aristocratic and elitist tendencies evident two centuries ago in England and Germany.

Such tendencies also emerged in a significant way in the late 1800s in the United States. Environmentalism takes on a new meaning when taking into account the well thought out presentation given in this important and thought-provoking book.
