The Earth Belongs to the People. Ecology and Power

San Francisco: People's Press, 1970. First edition. 4to, [1] 45, [2] pp, bound in card wraps. Illustrated throughout by the underground cartoonist Nick Thorkelson. This title was first published in 1970, and over the years appeared in several different printings, with different covers. This edition has a cover illustration of a malevolent storm over a city, with no mention of additional printings, and the publisher's advertisement leaf at rear lists only one title- Vietnam: A Thousand Years of Struggle ,

An early environmental action handbook, incorporating research and writing by Slater along with Doug Kitt, Dave Widelock, and Paul Kangas. The illustrations by Thorkelson are a fascinating link between the early days of the environmental movement and underground comics. Includes some early writings on greenwashing, smog, air pollution, and herbicide and pesticide use, and concludes with an ecological analysis of the Vietrnam War.

A very good example with some creasing and fading to the wraps and the previous owner's initials to first page. Item #31496
