For most people Green politics means a concern for “nature” and conservation. It means not clubbing seals to death and stopping acid rain. But these concerns, by themselves, are those of a middle class view of “nature”.
This book makes a larger claim — in order for Green politics to work, we need to develop a total policy for the environment, a social policy which views capitalist industry as the destroyer of the world we live in.
The environment of the poor in inner cities is of as much concern as the protection of trees — and the one is not possible without the other.
The authors of the book are: Joe Weston, Mark Levene, Frank Webster, Keith Lambe, Michael Redclift, Jeremy Seabrook, David Pepper and Kim Howells.
