Über dieses Buch

This book provides an introduction into the diversity of the environmental movement through great characters in the green sector. The book describes inspiring personal achievements, and at the same time it provides readers with information regarding the history, the main directions and the ethical principles of the environmental movement. Some of the most important characters of the movement from all around the world, are included in the book.  As well as the title characters, Buddha and Leonardo DiCaprio, other famous environmentalists like Albert Schweitzer, David Attenborough and Jane Goodall are discussed.  Some of the less well-known but equally important environmentalists such as Chico Mendes, Bruno Manser, Henry Spira, Tom Regan or Rossano Ercolini are highlighted in the various chapters. The selection of characters represents all major branches within the green sector, ranging from medieval saints to Hollywood celebrities, from university professors to field activists, from politicians to philosophers, from ecofeminists to radicals.




Über den Autor

László Erdős was born in 1982. He became passionate about the natural world at the age of seven, thanks to a wildlife book he received from his mother. He graduated as a biologist and earned a PhD in vegetation ecology. His research expertise includes conservation implications of spatial heterogeneity in natural and near-natural ecosystems. He is also interested in environmental ethics and the history of the green movement. He is an animal lover, a vegetarian, and an ardent supporter of animal rights. Currently he is a research fellow at the Institute of Ecology and Botany of the MTA Centre for Ecological Research (Vácrátót), a research fellow at the MTA-DE Lendület Functional and Restoration Ecology Research Group (Debrecen), and a visiting lecturer at the Faculty of Social Sciences of the Eötvös Loránd University (Budapest). He often gives popular presentations on conservation issues.

László lives in rural Hungary with his wife Dolly and a rescued cat named Marci.
