Ecological Resistance Movements: the Global Emergence of Radical and
Popular Environmentalism, Bron Taylor, editor. SUNY Press.
- The Edward Abbey Abbey's Web tribute web site-- Meet Edward Paul Abbey, twentieth-century polemicist and desert anarchist, a character of
elaborate contradictions and eccentricities whose words either infuriated or delighted his readers.
In a career spanning four decades, he wrote passionately in defense of the Southwest and its inhabitants, often
mocking the mindless bureaucratic forces hell-bent on destroying it. "Resist much, obey little," from Walt Withman,
was this warrior's motto.
While he was alive, attempts to label him in conventional terms nearly always fell short because he was neither
left-wing nor right-wing, nor was he an outlaw.
Abbey was a genuine rebel who simply did not believe in the
moderns industrial way of life. He wrote against the grain, always choosing the path of the greatest resistance.
Beginning in the 1950s, he depicted the Southwest not as a virgin utopia peopled by rugged individualists, but as a
region under siege because of government and corporate greed, its people at risk of being cut off from the primary
wellspring of their spiritual strength - the wild places. He's been dead for a while now, but the legend keeps on

Welcome to this User-Sponsored web site. As you can see, there's quite a comprehensive design plan underlying it all. There's also some pretty cool stuff already up, lurking, e-wrench in hand, behind many of these links.
But many links go nowhere right now. That's where you come in. Is there some aspect of this site you would like to support and see further developed? Well then! Send a contribution payable to Earth First! and tell us what you want more of... More Warrior Poet issues! More on Genetic Engineering actions! More Eco-defense! More road show info!
Of course these donations are sliding scale: no one's preferences or opinions turned away for lack of funds. This is a porous project that will continue to grow. It's only limited by the love and support we get from the users of this site. But please don't spend too much time at this web site. There's a lot of work to do right now out in the fields and forests and corporate board rooms.
So come back soon and see what has sprouted here in this section that seemed of interest to you. And if you can, please send a contribution and a note to:
