Summary

Bookchin warns of the dangers of pesticide use, and espouses an ecological and environmentalist worldview.

Influence

Our Synthetic Environment was one of the first books of the modern period in which an author espoused an ecological and environmentalist worldview. It predates Silent Spring (1962) by Rachel Carson, a more widely known book on the same topic widely credited as starting the environmental movement.[1]
