A Good That Transcends
by Eric T. Freyfogle
Publication Date: 2017-02-27
Since the birth of the modern environmental movement in the 1970s, the United States has witnessed dramatic shifts in social equality, ecological viewpoints, and environmental policy. With these changes has also come an increased popular resistance to environmental reform, but, as Eric T. Freyfogle reveals in this book, that resistance has far deeper roots. Calling upon key environmental voices from the past and present--including Aldo Leopold, Wendell Berry, David Orr, and even Pope Francis in his Encyclical--and exploring core concepts like wilderness and the tragedy of the commons, A Good That Transcends not only unearths the causes of our embedded culture of resistance, but also offers a path forward to true, lasting environmental initiatives.

The Water Will Come
by Jeff Goodell
Publication Date: 2017-10-24
A New York Times Critics' Top Book of 2017 One of Washington Post's 50 Notable Works of Nonfiction in 2017 One of Booklist's Top 10 Science Books of 2017 "An immersive, mildly gonzo and depressingly well-timed book about the drenching effects of global warming, and a powerful reminder that we can bury our heads in the sand about climate change for only so long before the sand itself disappears."

The Animals' Agenda
by Marc Bekoff; Jessica Pierce
Publication Date: 2017-04-18
A compelling argument that the time has come to use what we know about the fascinating and diverse inner lives of other animals on their behalf Every day we are learning new and surprising facts about just how intelligent and emotional animals are. At times, we humans translate that knowledge into compassion for other animals .... But on the whole, our growing understanding of what animals feel is not resulting in more respectful treatment of them.
The Inner Life of Animals
by Peter Wohlleben; Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson (Foreword by); Jane Billinghurst (Translator)
Publication Date: 2017-11-07
"Like The Hidden Life of Trees, Peter Wohlleben's The Inner Life of Animals will rock your world. Surprising, humbling, and filled with delight, this book shows us that animals think, feel and know in much the same way as we do--and that their lives are, to them, as precious as ours are to us." --Sy Montgomery, author of The Soul of an Octopus Through vivid stories of devoted pigs, two-timing magpies, and scheming roosters, The Inner Life of Animals weaves the latest scientific research into how animals interact with the world with Peter Wohlleben's personal experiences in forests and fields.
The Myth of Human Supremacy
by Derrick Jensen
Publication Date: 2016-05-17
In this impassioned polemic, radical environmental philosopher Derrick Jensen debunks the belief in a hierarchy of nature and the superiority of humans. Vast and underappreciated complexities of nonhuman life are explored in detail; the paralysis of the scientific establishment on moral and ethical issues is confronted; and a radical new framework for assessing the intelligence and sentience of nonhuman life is put forth. A philosopher-poet of the environmental movement, Jensen sounds an urgent call for its liberation from human domination.
A Plea for the Animals
by Matthieu Ricard
Publication Date: 2016-10-04
A powerful and wide-ranging indictment of the treatment of animals by humans--and an eloquent plea for animal rights. Matthieu Ricard takes the arguments from his best-sellers Altruism and Happiness to their logical conclusion: that compassion toward all beings, including our fellow animals, is a moral obligation and the direction toward which any enlightened society must aspire. He chronicles the appalling sufferings of the animals we eat, wear, and use for adornment or "entertainment," and submits every traditional justification for their exploitation to scientific evidence and moral scrutiny. What arises is an unambiguous and powerful ethical imperative for treating all of the animals with whom we share this planet with respect and compassion.
