This is a relatively extensive five-part zine on the relationship between anarchism and ecology. It starts out explaining what many agree anarchism is, then its general relationship to ecology. It then opens up into broader detail and covers three major anarchists and writers throughout history. It shows similarities, differences, and unrealistic ideas for all three, therefore letting the reader critically analyze the nature of anarchism and deciding for themselves what aspects are to be valued. This zine has a lot of excerpts from each anarchist’s work and well-documented footnotes, so the reader can decide the validity of the writer’s interpretation. There is a huge emphasis on environmentalism, preservation, and self sustainability, so I personally enjoyed and agreed with most of what was written. This is a great introduction to environmental anarchism and I would highly advise anyone to give it a read. –James Meier (Jura Books, 110 Crystal St. , Petersham, NSW 2111, Australia)
