NPG is pleased to recommend Breaking New Ground: A Personal History, the autobiography of global environmental activist Lester Brown. Praised by the Washington Post as “one of the world’s most influential thinkers,” he is the winner of multiple honorary awards and has published several works on the global environmental movement. Brown’s efforts – including his founding of both the Worldwatch Institute and Earth Policy Institute – have long been praised by NPG. In 1997, Brown was a keynote speaker at a joint NPG and FAIR press conference titled Reinventing Malthus for the 21st Century, which centered on John Rohe’s book A Bicentennial Malthusian Essay. A McArthur Fellow award winner and recipient of the United Nations Environmental Prize, Brown’s history of activism is sure to be a fascinating and educational tale.
