Like Our Earth, Ourselves (see above), this environmental-action guidebook--by an alliance of more than 110 US environmental groups--is oriented toward community and governmental redressing of ecological damage, With extensive, detailed, semitechnical accounts of global pressure points--destruction of the rain forests, galloping population growth, the problem of solid-waste management--this will appeal more to seriously committed environmental activists (who will find it a superb resource) than to the casually concerned citizen. The ""practical supplement"" to a PBS series, Race to Save the Planet, the book includes many charts and maps.
