Rising Tides is an extensively researched and engagingly written examination of the many factors that have shaped ecological thought. Challenging the basic assumptions of the western world-view, it exposes the fundamental flaws in a political, economic system that believes in unlimited economic growth within a finite world and has confused financial worth with the real wealth of the natural systems which we are all dependent upon.
The rift is growing between a powerful elite pushing their policies of globalisation and a world-wide network disillusioned with notions of growth, wealth and progress. Rising Tides suggests ways in which we can all plug into this network - rescue our economic system from manipulation by the corporate elite and help to create the sort of world we want to live in.

Review:

"His accessible style means that Spowers is sure to reach a wide audience, and if Rising Tides cannot call the environmental waverers to action, nothing will. The comprehensive references make it an excellent resource. . . A manifesto for change, Rising Tides ought to be required reading or our politicians." (Geographical Magazine)

"Spowers is, I believe, on the side of the angels. His blueprint for the future at least demonstrates an attempt to offers solutions rather than just to damn the problems and problem makers." (Sunday Times)

"The book does present a concise and well-written history of the environmental movement, as well as a vivid and inspiring survey of where we are now. Spowers is not just 'a writer', he a very good writer, with a clear, compelling style and a passion to match and there is no doubt that what we need now, more than dubious 'qualifications' from the industry-sponsored houses of learning, is the kind of passion and vision that someone of Spower's calibre possesses in spades." (John Burnside The Scotsman)
