Publisher Comments:

We are rapidly destroying our only habitat, Earth. It is becoming clear that many of the treaties, laws and policies concluded in recent years have failed to slow down, let alone halt or reverse, this process. Cormac Cullinan shows that the survival of the community of life on Earth (including humans) requires us to alter fundamentally our understanding of the nature and purpose of law and governance, rather than merely changing laws. In describing what this new 'Earth governance' and 'Earth jurisprudence' might look like, he also gives practical guidance on how to begin moving towards it. Wild Law fuses politics, legal theory, quantum physics and ancient wisdom into a fascinating and eminently readable story. It is an inspiring and stimulating book for anyone who cares about Earth and is concerned about the direction in which the human species is moving.

Book News Annotation:

Cullinan, CEO of an environmental law and policy consultancy in Cape Town, South Africa, presents the second edition of his ambitious 2003 volume outlining his vision of a legal system based on the laws of nature rather than those of an industry-based, man-made society. He begins by demonstrating the current human-centric state of man's relationship with nature, in which we view ourselves as separate, independent, and dominant; continues to posit an alternative view inspired by climate science and indigenous cultures, wherein we are interdependent with and reliant upon the natural world; and proceeds to employ political theory, legal history, science, and contemporary philosophy in service of his theory of Earth Jurisprudence and Earth Governance, which questions everything from property ownership, to the modern concept of time, to the legal rights of trees.
