The Enemy of Nature: The End of Capitalism or the End of the World?

The Enemy of Nature: The End of Capitalism or the End of the World? Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Capitalism and its by-products — imperialism, war, neoliberal globalization, racism, poverty and the destruction of community — are all playing a part in the destruction of our ecosystem. Only now are we beginning to realize the depth of the crisis and the kind of transformation which will have to occur to ensure our survival. This second, thoroughly updated, edition of The Enemy of Nature speaks to this new environmental awareness. Joel Kovel argues against claims that we can achieve a better environment through the current Western "way of being". By suggesting a radical new way forward, an integration of "red" and "green" politics, Joel Kovel offers real hope and vision for a more sustainable future.

About the Author

Joel Kovel is Distinguished Professor of Social Studies at Bard College.
