Defending Illusions: Federal Protection of Ecosystems

  • Allen Fitzsimmons
  • Defending Illusions examines the science, philosophy, and law of ecosystems management and shows how efforts to make federal protection of ecosystems the centerpiece of national environmental policy are driven by religious veneration of Mother Earth wrapped in a veil of weak science. The book reveals that placing the well-being of nature ahead of the well-being of people erodes the American dream and goes on to suggest how we can improve our stewardship of the land.
