Pages:71-83
Annotation:Describing himself as a “sympathetic outsider,” Guha, utilizing a Third World perspective, defines and critiques what he refers to as the Deep Ecology trend in American environmentalism. Identifying what he considers to be its four central “tenets,” he associates Deep Ecology with the wilderness preservation movement and critiques it as a correlate of consumer society. He concludes that the German Green and Indian environmentalist movements are more effective in addressing the socio-economic and political underpinnings of contemporary, global ills.
