Summary: A Shadowy backlash against environmentalists has begun to emerge in America, the most visible element of which calls itself the ''Wise Use'' movement. Among its stated goals are the unregulated use of timber, oil, gas, minerals, and range land, and the abolition of all environmental laws and agencies. In this first in depth investigation of the ''Wise Use'' backlash, author David Helvarg visits rallies, conferences, and confrontations that are the fronts in its war against the greens
. Helvarg shows the dimensions of this struggle as it is being waged in the courts; in the media, through popular mouthpieces like Rush Limbaugh and sympathetic coverage in influential newspapers such as the New York Times; in the heretical claims of the movement's ''counterscience''; and in the growing number of physical confrontations and threats used against environmental activists. Helvarg also documents the failure of the FBI to prevent such violence.
