Review: Barry Commoner and the Science of Survival

Posted by UEPI on June 17, 2008

Review by Peter R. Jutro in November 2007 issue of the Environmental Health Perspectives . Read the full review here.

The book capably illuminates the sweep of Commoner’s involvement in social issues of the last half-century, and makes a major contribution to the literature on the origins of current environmental debates.
We get from Egan an analytical, reasoned picture of Commoner—clearly a seminal figure in the history of American environmentalism—and of his role in that environmentalism. Commoner’s background, biases, aspirations, and intentions are well described and intriguingly tied to analyses of his activities.
