The Politics of Nature
Explorations in Green Political Theory
Edited by Andrew Dobson, Paul Lucardie
Routledge – 1995 – 256 pages
This book presents a uniquely comprehensive and balanced survey of current green political ideas. It analyses the ability of these ideas to provide plausible answers to fundamental problems in political theory, concerning justice and democracy, individual rights and freedom, human nature and gender. The authors, who come from a range of different disciplines, explore the relationship between green ideas and other traditions including liberalism, anarchism, feminism and Christianity.
