Description:
In a riveting detective story that melds science and politics, Michael Schacker investigates the case of the missing bees, examining the many theories on the cause, including cell phones, mites, new pathogens, and bee management.
More than a century after the birth of Rachel Carson, the world faces a new environmental disaster, from a chemical similar to DDT. This time the culprit appears to be IMD, or imidacloprid, a relatively new but widely used

“At last an authoritative account of the vanishing bees: one of the most puzzling environmental problems of recent times. . . . at once a great detective story and an object lesson of how to live in harmony with the living planet, our home.” --Thomas E. Lovejoy,

Biodiversity Chair and former President, Heinz Center for Science, Economics and Environment

 

"Who could imagine a spring without bees? One might say this is impossible, especially the kids. Michael Schacker's eye-opening storyA Spring without Beesis a must-read for all of us who want to live in a sustainable and regenerating world for many generations to come." --Anthony Rodale, Chairman Emeritus, The Rodale Institute


"The loss of the bees is a four-fold tragedy: for the beekeepers, the growers, the consumers and of course for the bees themselves. Michael Schacker's fascinating and enlightening book is an important new look at the great mystery of Colony Collapse Disorder." --Dr. James Amrine, former president of the Acarological Society of America, Medical Entomologist, West Virginia University

 
"In a debate clearly underpinned with political and commercial positioning and controversy over scientific fact and assumption, Michael Schacker’s multi-faceted review of the dispute to date, and its possible consequences, helps us clearly understand what is needed to reverse the bee decline threatening world food supply." --Dr. Kurt Johnson, ecologist and ethicist; co-author ofNabokov’s Blues:  The Scientific Odyssey of a Literary Genius
 
"A Spring Without Beesis an object lesson in just how delicate the web of life is. It sounds an urgent call to action on behalf of one of our economy's tiniest laborers but also asks that we re-think the environmental consequences of the entire way we do business." --Jeff Ruch,Executive Director of Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility (PEER)
 

“Michael Schacker offers another important rationale for organic farming methods as a way to protect the fruit and vegetable supply.”--Dr. Timothy J. LaSalle, PhD, Chief Executive Officer, The Rodale Institute


Bookseller Quote:
"If you read nothing else this summer, you must read this book - it will open your eyes and mind to the ecological impact you have on life every single day.  For the generation who ingored Rachel Carson, or who didn't read "Silent Spring", here's your second chance.&  more >>
