REVIEWS REVIEWS David Landis Barnhill and Roger S. Gottlieb (eds.), Deep Ecology and World Religions: New Essays on Sacred Ground , Albany, NY: State University of New York Press, 2001, 291 pp. ISBN: 0791448843 USD$21.95. This is a creatively conceived and executed volume which has long needed to be assembled. The ongoing articulation since the 1970s of the worldview called Deep Ecology has begged a number of ques- tions, many of which are addressed in this collection. David Barnhill and Roger Gottlieb have done us a great service in putting this work together. The book begins with an introductory argument by Roger Gottlieb, “Spiritual Deep Ecology and World Religions: A Shared Fate, A Shared Task.” Gottlieb distinguishes what he has called “spiritual deep ecology” from the more academic approach of early deep eco- logical writings. His argument is that deep ecology is not a “new” philosophy alongside existing ones, but rather an approach to spir- ituality that can be followed within all religious traditions. Deep ecology has tended to see in indigenous worldviews an alter- native model superior to the dominant Western industrial one. John Grim acknowledges the many points of overlap, but also raises the concern of many Worldviews Brill
