About the Author

Celebrate Earth as a garden!'from backyard to farm, agricultural field to flourishing wilderness, endangered species to sustainable biosphere (Garden of Eden). Give respect to and take responsibility for each landscape as land of promise, the promised land. Economic justice is inseparable from environmental justice, caring for people inseparable from caring for creation. Lee's penetrating, often detailed, account of smart land use and inept misuse is full of insights for difficult times.
Daniel E. Lee is the Marian Taft Cannon professor in the humanities at Augustana College and director of the Augustana Center for the Study of Ethics. He is author of numerous articles and ten books, including Human Rights and the Ethics of Globalization.
