Editorial Reviews

Review

“[Pearce] hits the nail on the head… [He] brings the balanced perspective of a seasoned, freethinking environmental reporter, pushing points that need to be made.”
Kirkus Reviews

Praise for
The New Wild

“Pearce shows that biodiversity actually increases more frequently than it decreases when newer wildlife marches in. Must reading for environmentalists of every stripe, and an optimistic report on the resilience of nature in a world of constantly shifting ecosystems.”
Booklist

“Pragmatic conservation has to begin with undogmatic, realistic ecology, which shows that alien-invasive plants and animals almost always increase biodiversity—and therefore nature’s general health and robustness. Fred Pearce’s ‘new wild’ suggests a matching ‘new conservation.’”          
—Stewart Brand, author of
Whole Earth Discipline
 
“I wholly agree with Fred Pearce’s argument for rewilding. Life, from the smallest bacterium to the whole living planet, is dynamic. Species do not belong in a planet-sized zoo. We should let Gaia evolve.”
—James Lovelock, author of
The Vanishing Face of Gaia and A Rough Ride to the Future
 
Praise for Fred Pearce

The Land Grabbers

“Terrific… [Pearce has] produced a work of required reading for anyone concerned about global justice in the twenty-first century.”
—Raj Patel, author of
The Value of Nothing
 
When the Rivers Run Dry

“An enriching and farsighted work.”
—Jai Singh,
San Francisco Chronicle
