Twenty years have passed since northern California, Oregon, and Washington seceded from the United States to create a new nation, Ecotopia. Now, this isolated, mysterious country welcomes its first American visitor, jaded reporter Will Weston, who explores a society structured around sustainability and social justice. Innovative and unsettling ideas unravel everything that Weston knows to be true about government, economics, and human nature and ultimately force him to choose between two competing views of civilization.
Since it was first published in 1975, Ecotopia has inspired and challenged readers throughout the world. This fortieth-anniversary edition includes Callenbach's final essay, ''An Epistle to the Ecotopians,'' written in the weeks before his death in 2012, and a new foreword by Callenbach's close friend and Heyday publisher, Malcolm Margolin.
