Drawing from David Suzuki's published and unpublished writings, this collection reveals the underlying passions and philosophies that have informed his work over a lifetime. In these incisive and provocative essays, Suzuki explores the limits of knowledge and the connectedness of all things; he looks unflinchingly at the destructive forces of globalisation, political shortsightedness, and greed and cautions against blind faith in science, technology, politics, and economics. Here too are examples of how and where to make those changes that will matter to all of us and to future generations. David offers a vision of hope based on our love of children and nature, with inspiring stories about the people who are making positive environmental and social contributions to our world. Here is an important reminder of how we are all connected and of what really matters. Written with clarity, passion and wisdom, this book is essential reading for anyone who admires David Suzuki. Praise for The Sacred Balance: Rediscovering Our Place in Nature: For Suzuki, the requisite wisdom lies in respect for all creation, and in this important book he makes that case with passion and understanding. John Polanyi, Nobel laureate This book is the most complete expression to date of an environmental ethic from one of the world's leading conservation writers, combining science, theology, poetry and philosophy to express a world view toward which the human species must shift in the twenty-first century. The Sacred Balance has a beautiful spirit. E.O. Wilson, author of The Diversity of Life.… (more)
