I am looking for comments, mini-reviews on these two books by John Bellamy Foster, one is The Ecological Rift and the other is the Ecological Revolution. The latter has half the size of the former; does that mean it is more readable, accessible? I assume M Spector has read them both (possibly before they were published) but I would certainly invite as many responses as possible.
I ask because I am trying to encourage a family member to buy one or the other. Neither is available in the Winnipeg library system. In fact, they appear to have no books by JBF, just the Monthy Review and that is in the section where you can never take the magazines on loan. My memory is vague but I thought 10 or 20 years ago the other magazine section have it for loan.
Anyway, any thoughts on these two titles?
