Arvustused

This book is an extremely valuable resource for anyone trying to understand-or teach-the connections among gender, the environmental crisis, and globalization. -- Roger S. Gottlieb, author of A Greener Faith: Religious Environmentalism and our Planet's Future The work is weighty. It is not offering fluff and uncritical new age spirituality. Rather, most articles deal with concrete realities and all the authors are self-reflective-identifying both the contributions and the limitations of different elements of, or types of, ecofeminism. * Canadian Woman Studies * This book is important to scholars in religion, gender, and environmental studies, but also should find its way into scholarship and teaching about international development and comparative ethics. -- Nancie Erhard, Saint Mary's University, Nova Scotia * Religious Studies Review * The editors have collected a wonderful sampling of the field...This collection is a testament to the power of ecofeminism to bring about global justice. * Waterwheel * Ecofeminism and Globalization demonstrates the power of ecofeminism to unmask injustice in its many manifestations, and how feminist religious insights bring about social change in the real world. -- Mary E. Hunt, Women's Alliance for Theology, Ethics, and Ritual (WATER)
