Eco-Socialism: From Deep Ecology to Social Justice

David Pepper, "Eco-Socialism: From Deep Ecology to Social Justice"
English | 1993 | ISBN: 0415097193, 1138144630 | 288 pages | PDF | 1.1 MB

Capitalism continues to degrade ecosystems and create social injustice. The 1992 Earth Summit demonstrated that the powerful vested interests behind Western capitalism have no intention of radically changing their goals and methods to help create an environmentally sound or socially just global society. In order to confront this, the green movement must now develop a coherent eco-socialist politics. People must control their own lives and their relationship with their environment.

Drawing on Marx, Morris, Kropotkin and anarcho-syndicalism, David Pepper presents a provocatively anthropocentric analysis of the way forward for green politics and environmental movements. Establishing the elements of a radical eco-socialism, the book rejects biocentrism, simplistic limits to growth and overpopulation theses, whilst exposing the deficiencies and contradictions in green approaches to postmodern politics and deep ecology.

Eco-Socialism will provide students of ecology, politics, and the environment with a thorough introduction to the ideologies of Marxism, anarchism and deep ecology, and how these can be synthesised into a radical green politics.
