Annotation:

"The intellectual community has long needed a guide to Green politics and environmental philosophy in Europe. Ironically, American environmentalists sometimes have a narrow world-view of conservation efforts."—Max Oelschlaeger, series editor and author of The Idea of Wilderness

One of Germany's leading environmental thinkers explains his holistic alternative to the "incomplete Enlightenment" of the dominant western world view—to join together as global citizens and consumers, treating all purchasing choices as ethical, and withdrawing our spending from an economic system which threatens the very foundations of life on earth.

Revolution for Nature combines a provocative historical and philosophical analysis with practical recommendations both for the lifestyle changes of reformed consumers, and for the political constitution of the Nature State of the future.

Co-Published with White Horse Press, Cambridge, England.
