“One of the world’s most influential thinkers” (The Washington Post), Lester Brown is the founder of the Earth Policy and Worldwatch Institutes, two nonprofit research organizations dedicated to analyzing environmental issues on a global basis and planning a sustainable future. His many honors include a MacArthur Fellowship and the United Nations Environmental Prize, and in 1986 the Library of Congress requested his personal papers, noting that his writings “have already strongly affected thinking about problems of world population and resources.” He is the author of more than 50 books, including Full Planet, Empty Plates and Plan B. His new memoir traces his life from a small-farm New Jersey childhood to leadership as a global environmental activist.
