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.
""A terrific read...this book is 'vital' in the most profound meaning of that word.""-- Review of Radical Political Economics
