Rather than describe aspects of our global dilemma and pose interpretations and solutions, Ecology and Consciousness brings together a medley of voices crying out in Earth song. Some of them are sonorous, some of them shrill, some of them fully, some of them outrageous--all of them our paradox of consciousness in nature. Contributors include Gary Snyder, Knud Rasmussen, Roy A. Rappaport, Rinpoche Chogyan Trungpa, and Jacques Valle.

P. Tarcher, among others.
