Another book rec
If Marlene Zuk's defense of pathogens didn't appeal to you, try Jeffrey St. Clair's Born Under a Bad Sky: Notes from the Dark Side of the Earth. It's everything environmental writing usually isn't; i.e., funny, passionate and genuinely radical. I've got a review of it up at the Scene's website, which you can see here. (I cannot resist pointing out that my review is the "Website of the Day" at Counterpunch, the online home of tree-huggers, anarchists, leftists, peaceniks, and all manner of other fine folk. I'm honored.)
I'm not sure how likely you are to find this book at your local Barnes & Noble, but it's available from Counterpunch's store and from its publisher, AK Press, as well as Amazon.com.
