Like her Diet for a Small Planet classic, EcoMind is challenging, controversial and empowering.
About the Author
Powerful and inspiring, Ecomind will open your eyes and change your thinking. I want everyone to read it.
Vandana Shiva, Ph.D, is a philosopher scientist, activist and most recently, author Staying Alive: Women, Ecology and Development
Frances Moore Lappé brings us yet another gift in EcoMind. She cautions us to avoid the mental traps that block our thinking. She awakens us to our immense possibilities and potentials. She invites us to release our latent energies to be the change we want to see.
Olivier de Schutter, the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food
Frances Moore Lappé's exceptionally thought-provoking book is a message of hope. It shows how change is possible, once we open our eyes, look around, and see that we depend on others and on nature. This book obliges us to re-imagine our world, brick by brick, by first re-imagining ourselves.
Mollie Katzen, author of the Moosewood Cookbook
This book is pivotal in the most literal sense. As I read it, I find myself turning the crucial 180 degrees from frustration and fear to a sense of constructive possibility. Frances's ability to express the most complex, existential yearnings is epic—matched only by her courage. Nothing I can say will do justice to how this book continues to affect me.
Peter Barnes, author of Capitalism 3.0: A Guide to Reclaiming the Commons
Lappé shows how by seeing the big picture we can change it. It's a clarion call in this rising age of rising despair.
John Gershman, Clinical Associate Professor, Robert F Wagner Graduate School of Pubic Service, New York University
Frances Moore Lappé has done it again. As she has done so insightfully with respect to food, hunger, and democracy, Lappé now turns her sights on the contemporary ecological crises. Her accessible and provocative analysis demonstrates how the ways many people think and talk about these crises – especially the dominant narratives of scarcity – obscure the inequalities of power that lie at the root of these crises and inhibit rather than inspire the kind of effective movements necessary to confront them. EcoMind is a profound example of how analysis breeds not paralysis but rather informed and inspired action, and is on track to do so in the 21st century just like Diet for a Small Planet and Food First did in the 20th.
Michael Brune, Executive Director, The Sierra Club
EcoMind reminds us that the most important resource for restoring a clean and healthy planet is the one sitting between our ears. Frances Moore Lappé brilliantly challenges the negative thought traps of doom-and-gloom environmental messages and emerges with a positive, people-powered approach.
