Raising Elijah: Protecting Our Children in an Age of Environmental Crisis (A Merloyd Lawrence Book)
- Publish Date: 2011-03-29
- Binding: Hardcover
- Author: Sandra Steingraber
Each chapter of this engaging and unique book focuses on one inevitable ingredient of childhood--everything from pizza to laundry to homework to the Big Talk --and explores the underlying social, political, and ecological forces behind it. Through these everyday moments, Steingraber demonstrates how closely the private, intimate world of parenting connects to the public world of policy-making and how the ongoing environmental crisis is, fundamentally, a crisis of family life.
