Présentation de l'éditeur: Leading political and environmental commentator on where we have gone wrong, and what to do about it

?Here are some of the things I try to fight: undemocratic power, corruption, deception of the public, environmental destruc-tion, injustice, inequality and the misallocation of resources, waste, denial, the libertarianism which grants freedom to the pow-erful at the expense of the powerless, undisclosed interests, complacency.?

George Monbiot is one of the most vocal, and eloquent, critics of the current consensus. In How Did We Get into this Mess?, which collects Monbiot?s journalism over the last seven years, he brilliantly anatomises the state we are in: the devastation of our environment, the crisis of inequality, the corporate takeover of Nature, our obsessions with growth and profit and the decline of the political debate over what to do. While his diagnosis of the problems in front of us is clear-sighted and reasonable, he also develops solutions to chal-lenge this politics of fear.

Buchbeschreibung Verso Books Feb 2016, 2016. Buch. Buchzustand: Neu. 219x150x34 mm. Neuware - Leading political and environmental commentator on where we have gone wrong, and what to do about it 'Without countervailing voices, naming and challenging power, political freedom withers and dies. Without countervailing voices, a better world can never materialise. Without countervailing voices, wells will still be dug and bridges will still be built, but only for the few. Food will still be grown, but it will not reach the mouths of the poor. New medicines will be developed, but they will be inaccessible to many of those in need.' George Monbiot is one of the most vocal, and eloquent, critics of the current consensus. How Did We Get into this Mess , based on his powerful journalism, assesses the state we are now in: the devastation of the natural world, the crisis of inequality, the corporate takeover of nature, our obsessions with growth and profit and the decline of the political debate over what to do. While his diagnosis of the problems in front of us is clear-sighted and reasonable, he also develops solutions to challenge the politics of fear. How do we stand up to the powerful when they seem to have all the weapons What can we do to prepare our children for an uncertain future Controversial, clear but always rigorously argued, How Did We Get into this Mess makes a persuasive case for change in our everyday lives, our politics and economics, the ways we treat each other and the natural world. 352 pp. Englisch. Artikel-Nr. 9781784783624
