Hamblin argues that military planning for World War III essentially created "catastrophic environmentalism": the idea that human activity might cause global natural disasters.

Publisher: Oxford University Press
Are today's environmental crises linked to the plans for World War Three? The United States and its allies prepared for a global struggle against the Soviet Union by using science to extend "total war" ideas to the natural environment. This book links environmental warfare to the environmental crises of the 1970s and beyond.

Publisher: Indiana University Press
This brief but ambitious book explores our relationship with nature through the imagery we use when we talk about Mother Nature. Employing the critical tools of religious studies, psychology, and gender studies, Catherine M. Roach examines the various manifestations of nature as "mother" and what that idea implies for the way we approach the natural world. Part One, "Nature as Good Mother," discusses the notion that nature is, or is like, a beneficent and nurturing mother who provides and maintains life. In studying the "green" slogan "Love Your Mother," Roach questions the effects -- for women and for the environment -- of imputing female gender to nature. She asks us to look at the associations that "motherhood" and "mothering" carry within a culture still shaped by patriarchy. She notes the danger of such an apparently pro-environmental slogan if "mother" evokes the bountiful, self-sacrificing provider who herself requires no care. Part Two, "Nature as Bad Mother," looks at the contrary notion of nature as a violent, threatening, and wrathful mother. This image arises most often when humans and technology are depicted as masters of unruly nature. Here Roach draws on theological reflection to analyze this ambivalence toward nature manifested in a fantasy that casts humans as gods. She explores the contributions of eco-theology and eco-psychology to a "heart of darkness" perspective. Finally, Part Three, "Nature as Hurt Mother," looks at possibilities and pitfalls of environmental healing inherent in the image of nature as a mother we have wounded and now seek to heal.

AND ARTICLES IN ENGLISH ON PARDO BAZÁN 22 SELECTED
Author: Emilia Pardo Bazn
Publisher: Bucknell University Press
Mother Nature is certainly Emilia Pardo Bazan's greatest contribution to the Realistic/ Naturalistic Spanish novel of her time, and represents her literary powers at the very height of her career as a writer. It has been said that this novel presents the keenest challenges and the most compelling rewards, offering the reader the purposefully overgrown ecological, social, and moral background for a poignant central narrative of human frailty that pits the desire for personal happiness against the necessity of meeting moral standards. Pardo Bazan's novel demonstrates the impact of the incipient social and biological sciences on creative writing, thus reflecting the influence of Emile Zola's Naturalistic tendencies, while still maintaining tinges of Romanticism. It addresses questions that remain very contemporary and controversial, and poses the opposition of nature of virtue, romantic love as ennobling or basely instinctual, and gives the reader an example of the problem of incest and other forms of sexual transgression. She recognizes the role of religion and its influence on morality, the conflict between regional and centralized culture, the contrast between rural and urban visions of life, as well as the eternal struggle of women for better education, freedom, and self-determination. The pages of the novel contain some of the finest examples of her literary craft, and give evidence of its expressive dialogue, dramatic tension, and vivid portrayals of characters, scenes, and situations. Mother Nature reflects the impact of the events of the two critical years between 1885 and 1887 on the author's life as a novelist. At the age of thirty-four, she was now separated from her husband of seventeen years, Jose Quiroga. While in Paris during the winter of 1886, she completed her major novel, the celebrated House of Ulloa. In the French capital she met Emile Zola, Alphonse Daudet, and Edmond de Goncourt, the greatest figures of the new Naturalistic movement. Mother Nature, published in 1887, was written after her return from abroad and clearly reveals how much she was influenced by the new literary school, especially Zola's The Sin of Father Mouret (1875). This novel should be of special interest to students of Spanish literature when reading the literature of the late nineteenth century. This author has had an enormous influence on the women novelists of the mid-twentieth century, and Spanish feminists since her time have looked upon her as a beacon for their aspirations and dreams of a more just society. For those unfamiliar with her reputation and her literary work, this novel should open their eyes to the extraordinary power of the literature in Spain during these years. She and Benito Perez Galdos, with whom she had a very special and intimate relationship for a number of years, should help rescue the Spanish novel of this time from the neglect which it has suffered until now.
Award-winning author Terry Grosz, whose career in conservation is matched by his skill as a storyteller, revisits his rookie years as a fish and game warden for the State of California, where his on-the-job training got him into some awful scrapes (but the bad guys he chased almost always got into worse ones). As a law enforcement agent, he learned to sniff out trouble, defuse tense situations, and stay alive; and as a human being, he learned to temper justice with mercy and to treat everyone fairly. Grosz's stories are action-packed and driven by his passion to preserve our country's wildlife, whether he was working under the wing of a mentor, fighting out from underfoot of the bureaucrats, or stepping on the toes of corrupt and hypocritical politicians.

By age ten, Shane thinks if he can handle the punishment, no one can really make him pay for the crime. Shane first delves into a life of delinquency by stealing bikes and pawning them to the local drug dealers. But it is not long after he buys his first gun that he murders the ice cream lady in cold blood. In just twenty-four hours, Shane officially transforms from a petty thief into a ruthless killer and drug slinger who, by the age of eighteen, accumulates over a million dollars. As Shane continues to murder without shame, he meets Cindy, a stripper who steals his heart and eventually gives birth to his first child, Junior. Despite Cindy’s pleas to leave his life of crime behind, Shane seeks revenge for a shooting that leaves him fighting for his life. After murdering a neighborhood pastor and his mother, Shane marries Cindy and begins pimping—a decision that eventually lands him in jail and leaves Junior to begin his own ambitious rise through the darkness that lurks in the streets. Mother Nature’s Mistake presents a raw, chilling account of life in the ghetto as two men separated by generations attempt to bridge the gap between family, manhood, and themselves.
