Killeen, Timothy J. A Perfect Storm in the Amazon Wilderness: Success and Failure in the Fight to Save an Ecosystem of Critical Importance to the Planet. Vol. 1, The Conventional Economy and the Drivers of Change. Cambridgeshire: The White Horse Press, 2022.

The book is essential reading for all those interested in the conservation of the world’s most important ecosystem, and that should include every one of us. In a lucid style backed by encyclopaedic knowledge, Killeen unpicks the extremely complex ecological and socio-political threads that comprise the recent history and the vital future of the Pan Amazon region. The fight to save the Amazon is a fight for sustainability that is emblematic of the entire future of human co-existence with Nature on Earth. Killeen is an authoritative and impassioned guide, eschewing soundbites in favour of a clear-sighted and highly nuanced picture of the realities on the ground. Only in understanding present realities and how they came to pass, he argues, can we proceed hopefully into the future. (Source: White Horse Press)
