L'encerclement by Barry Commoner( Book )

42 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Chapter One: This book ... begins with the ecosphere, the setting in which civilization has done its great'and terrible'deeds. Then it moves to a description of some of the damage we have done to the ecosphere'to the air, the water, the soil. However, by now such horror stories of environmental destruction are familiar, even tiresome. Much less clear is what we need to learn from them, and so I have chosen less to shed tears for our past mistakes than to try to understand them. Most of this book is an effort to discover which human acts have broken the circle of life, and why. I trace the environmental crisis from its overt manifestations in the ecosphere to the ecological stresses which they reflect, to the faults in productive technology'and in its scientific background'that generate these stresses, and finally to the economic, social, and political forces which have driven us down this self-destructive course. All this in the hope'and expectation'that once we understand the origins of the environmental crisis, we can begin to manage the huge undertaking of surviving it

Water and the Dream of the Engineers( Visual )

3 editions published between 1983 and 2014 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the cholera epidemics of the nineteenth century to the climbing cancer rate of our time; from the colossal scale of New York City's aqueduct and water tunnels to the water wars of the West; from the dangers of chemical contamination to the water politics of Polanski's film Chinatown, Water and the Dream of the Engineers explores both the engineers' dreams for, and public fears about, the world we have inherited. This is a fascinating documentary where rich social history frames a spirited debate between David Brower (former Sierra Club President), biologist Barry Commoner, and Able Wolman (dean of American Sanitary Engineering). The film's wider context is provided by the frustrations and concerns of those who maintain and use our water systems in the present day. The film is an educational odyssey about engineering, environmentalism, and the troubled relations between these two traditions. Most importantly, Water and the Dream of the Engineers reveals that conflicts over technology and the environment are, at root, debates about power and the promise of democracy
