Earth First! Fist, Volume 18

Shapiro, Natalie, et al., eds., Earth First! Journal 18, no. 5 (1 May 1998). Republished by the Environment & Society Portal, Multimedia Library.

In this issue of Earth First! Journal, Dennis Martinez contributes his thoughts on man and nature, Edith T. Mirante gives an update on the Burmese gas pipeline, Garth Kahl calls for rethinking national borders, and John Bowling interviews John Trudell. 

Decay, death, birth and growth are part of our everyday experience. They are organic processes that all of us are intimately familiar with. […] Yet most of us in the larger industrial Western culture live, work and study in a human environment seemingly at odds with our everyday perceptions of nature. We live in an environment that is structured economically, technologically and intellectually like a machine.
