"An engaging and inspiring perspective."--Napra Review
"Metzner brings an astonishing number of sources together in his survey of contemporary ecological thinking. With accessible prose, extensive references, and superb illustrations, Green Psychology provides the reader with a fascinating introduction and resource to the field of ecopsychology."--Michael Emerson, Independent Publisher
"Ralph Metzner's life-long fascination with human consciousness has led him to research history, political systems, mythology, archetypal psychology, and indigenous spiritual means. Green Psychology is a unique, masterful, and much needed integration of these usually disparate fields."--Chellis Glendinning, author of Off the Map and My Name is Chellis and I'm in Recovery from Western C
"Metzner's vision makes for stimulating reading and provocative reflection."--Choice, December 1999
"At once visionary and down-to-earth, [Green Psychology] is an often profound exploration of the deeply disturbed relationship between humanity and nature."--Publishers Weekly, July 12, 1999
"Green Psychology accomplishes things that few environmental books have--it involves the reader on more than the intellectual level; it personalizes the global issues on a deep, inner level; it allows one to embrace the shadow side of our industrialized past; it brings myths to life in a renewed way; and it weaves poetry to stir the heart and imagination. Of all the other writers preaching about and berating our environmental participation, perhaps it will be the psychologist, a Ralph Metzner, who awakens the sleeper."--Sophia Tarila, ForeWord, August 1999
