About this book

Ecology and Revolution: Global Crisis and the Political Challenge is an in-depth exploration and analysis of the global ecological crisis (going far beyond the issue of global warming) in the larger context of historical conditions and political options shaped by the failure (and incapacity) of the existing political system to adequately confront the crisis.

Reviews

'After examining the ecological crisis afflicting humanity and the planet, Carl Boggs concludes that only a radical political solution can alleviate our problems. For making such a clear call for systemic change, he will stand as a visionary scholar for generations to come.' - George Katsiaficas, author of Subversion of Politics

"Fluent and well-researched, and unsparingly reflective, Boggs never stints when distributing blame where it belongs - with the transnational capitalist class. Ranged against this book is a political establishment hampered by self-interest, entangled in the tentacles of finance capital, and equipped with an astonishingly tin ear. Boggs breaks the liberal taboo of painting an unequivocal portrait of neoliberal capitalism and the plutocratic dimensions of the neoliberal security state. At this critical moment in history, a book by one of the country's most significant writers on politics is welcome indeed and can serve as a spike driven into the concrete calamity of our quotidian existence, illuminating the grave threats to our unbidden lives and reminding us pointedly that we need nothing short of a revolutionary political struggle." - Peter McLaren, Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, University of California, Los Angeles

"Carl Boggs outlines a comprehensive critical assessment of the environmental challenges

facing the world in the twenty-first century. Grounding his critique in an approach

drawn from Western Marxism, nonviolent resistance, and today's new social movements,

he persuasively articulates a post-liberal and post-Marxist transformative politics

to create a more ecological economy and society based on democratic governance." - Timothy W. Luke, University Distinguished Professor, Political Science, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University
