Description - Promising the Earth by Robert Lamb

Published to mark the 25th anniversary of the founding of Friends of the Earth, this volume offers an account of the Green Movement. It presents an insight into the ups and downs of environmental campaigning within the context of modern events and attitudes. The inside story of Friends of the Earth's pioneering campaigns is revealed - from the anti-whaling campaigns of the 1970s through to the anti-road campaigns of the present. The narrative bears witness to the broader process still unfolding: the maturing of the environmental movement and the challenges that a highly uncertain new millenium holds for tomorrow's green campaigners. Features of the text include: coverage of specific campaigns, including Twyford Down, countryside access/protection, anti-whaling, fur trade, and anti-nuclear campaigns; a variety of illustrations and photographic art from cartoonist Steve Bell, artist Simon English and others; and news photographs of campaign actions, headline events and disasters.
