Eco-Warriors was the first in-depth look at the people, actions, history and philosophies behind the "radical" environmental movement. Focusing on the work of Earth First!, the Sea Shepherds, Greenpeace, and the Animal Liberation Front, among others, Rik Scarce told exciting and sometimes frightening tales of front-line warriors defending an Earth they see as being in environmental peril. While continuing to study these movements as a Ph.D. student, Scarce was jailed for contempt of court for refusing to divulge his sources to prosecutors eager to thwart these groups’ activities. In this updated edition, Scarce brings the trajectory of this movement up to date—including material on the Earth Liberation Front—and provides current resources for all who wish to learn more about one of the most dynamic and confrontational political movements of our time. Literate, captivating, and informative, this is also an ideal volume for classes on environmentalism, social movements, or contemporary politics.
Critical Issues in Homeland Security: A Casebook encourages analytical and careful examination of practical homeland security problems through the presentation of contemporary cases involving major state or national events. Case studies demonstrate the complexity of challenges within the domain of homeland security policy and administration. Editors James D. Ramsay and Linda Kiltz carefully curated fourteen cases, all from top scholars and practitioners, to cover a broad range of legal, policy, and operational challenges within the field of homeland security. Timely and interesting cases on such issues as arctic security, the use of drones in targeted killings, cyber security, and the emergency management lessons of the 2010 Haiti earthquake give students a deeper understanding of the relationship between the theories and the practices of homeland security. Discussion questions at the end of each case and an online instructor's manual make Critical Issues in Homeland Security an even more effective learning tool for any homeland security program.
The first book to be published on the ELF, Earth Liberation Front 1997-2002 is a must read for anyone interested in understanding the radical environmental movement in the United States and the birth of a clandestine, underground organization acting in defense of the planet
The Animal Liberation Front
Author: Best Ph.D., Steven, Nocella II, Anthony J.
Publisher: Lantern Books
The actions of the Animal Liberation Front (ALF) constitute one of the most misunderstood components of the animal advocacy movement in the U.K. and U.S. Not so much an organization as an ever-changing cluster of individuals who free animals from laboratories, farms, and other animal-confinement facilities, the ALF has been by turns romanticized and vilified, hounded and lionized. In this detailed introduction to the ALF, which constitutes the opening chapter of their edited volume, Terrorists or Freedom Fighters?, academics Steve Best and Anthony Nocella place the ALF in the context of other liberation and social justice movements and examine its stated commitment to nonviolence and the forces arrayed against it. The result is a potent, polemical, and passionately engaged study of activism in an age of terror laws and fearmongering.
Anarchism and Animal Liberation
Author: Anthony J. Nocella II, Richard J. White, Erika Cudworth
Building upon anarchist critiques of racism, sexism, ableism and classism, this collection of new essays melds anarchism with animal advocacy in arguing that speciesism is an ideological and social norm rooted in hierarchy and inequality. Rising from the anarchist-influenced Occupy Movement, this book brings together international scholars and activists who challenge us all to look more critically into the causes of speciesism and to take a broader view of peace, social justice and the nature of oppression. Animal advocates have long argued that speciesism will end if the humanity adopts a vegan ethic. This concept is developed into the argument that the vegan ethic has the most promise if it is also anti-capitalist and against all forms of domination.
The first assembled timeline of the Animal Liberation Front's 30 year history - from broken windows to lab raids. The Animal Liberation Front is a clandestine movement of activists who step in to illegally rescue animals in the dead of night when legal campaigns have failed. Organized by year, "Animal Liberation Front: Complete Diary of Actions, The First 30 Years" chronicles every reported U.S. A.L.F. action since 1979 (and a single liberation from 1977). This is a complete document of every known extra-legal action carried out since the dawn of the U.S. animal liberation movement. The book covers not only the actions of the A.L.F., but all groups working outside the law to save animals ranging from The Justice Department to the Paint Panthers. The book includes: *Complete list of reported actions, broken down by year. *Unclaimed actions reported in the media. *The first comprehensive look at the history of the underground animal liberation movement in the United States. "A.L.F. Diary of Actions: The First 30 Years" is the first of its kind, and a must-own for any serious animal rights movement historian.
Free the Animals
Author: Ingrid Newkirk
Publisher: Lantern Books
This is the true story of how the animal liberation underground started in the US. Every character - including each of the wonderful animals you will come to know - is real flesh and blood. Because the federal government retains an abiding interest in locking up anyone involved in illegally removing animals from those who legally exploit them, it has convened grand juries to investigate the often daring and successful raids you will read about. Understanding how some quite 'ordinary' people came to break the law may very well change your life.

The Logic of Political Violence is an excellent resource for those contemplating political and social change in the United States. It is a must read for everyone involved in U.S. political and social movements, especially for those wondering why single issue pursuits rarely, if ever, are ultimately successful. Challenging the predominant societal norms on the political and social change process in the United States, Rosebraugh has made an important contribution to the struggle that may very well become the new American Revolution.
Greening the Academy
Author: Samuel Fassbinder, Anthony Nocella, Richard Kahn
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
This is the academic Age of the Neoliberal Arts. Campuses—as places characterized by democratic debate and controversy, wide ranges of opinion typical of vibrant public spheres, and service to the larger society—are everywhere being creatively destroyed in order to accord with market and military models befitting the academic-industrial complex. While it has become increasingly clear that facilitating the sustainability movement is the great 21st century educational challenge at hand, this book asserts that it is both a dangerous and criminal development today that sustainability in higher education has come to be defined by the complex-friendly “green campus” initiatives of science, technology, engineering and management programs. By contrast, Greening the Academy: Ecopedagogy Through the Liberal Arts takes the standpoints of those working for environmental and ecological justice in order to critique the unsustainable disciplinary limitations within the humanities and social sciences, as well as provide tactical reconstructive openings toward an empowered liberal arts for sustainability. Greening the Academy thus hopes to speak back with a collective demand that sustainability education be defined as a critical and moral vocation comprised of the diverse types of humanistic study that will benefit the well-being of our emerging planetary community and its numerous common locales.
Igniting a Revolution
Author: Steven Best, Anthony J. Nocella
Publisher: A K PressDistribution
As the destruction of nature reaches new extremes, resistance becomes ever more militant. Radical environmental groups are front-page news. From laboratory bombings to the destruction of ski resorts, this emerging militancy has been truly upping the political ante. This anthology features a range of voices from these groups - from academics to armed revolutionaries - and explores this new political struggle. The first book of its kind on this increasingly important topic.
Frantz Fanon was one of the twentieth century’s most important theorists of revolution, colonialism, and racial difference, and this, his masterwork, is a classic alongside Orientalism and The Autobiography of Malcolm X. The Wretched of the Earth is a brilliant analysis of the psychology of the colonized and their path to liberation. Bearing singular insight into the rage of colonized peoples and the role of violence in historical change, the book also incisively attacks postindependence disenfranchisement of the masses by the elite on one hand, and intertribal and interfaith animosities on the other. A veritable handbook of social reorganization for leaders of emerging nations, The Wretched of the Earth has had a major impact on civil rights, anticolonialism, and black-consciousness movements around the world. This new translation updates its language for a new generation of readers and its lessons are more vital now than ever.
