The leading political and environmental commentator tackles where we have gone wrong, and what to do about it. Based on his powerful journalism, this book 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.
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, it makes a persuasive case for change in our everyday lives, our politics and economics, the ways we treat each other and the natural world.
