Description:
More Info Around the world, consciousness of the threat to our environment is growing. The majority of solutions on offer, from using efficient light bulbs to biking to work, focus on individual lifestyle changes, yet the scale of the crisis requires far deeper adjustments.

Ecology and Socialism argues that time still remains to save humanity and the planet, but only by building social movements for environmental justice that can demand qu…alitative changes in our economy, workplaces, and infrastructure.

About the Author:
Chris Williams is a longtime environmental activist, based in New York City. He is professor of physics and chemistry at Pace University, and chair of the science department at Packer Collegiate Institute. Williams is also a frequent contributor to the International Socialist Review. Ecology and Socialism is Williams’ first book.

Praise for Ecology and Socialism:
“This book is more than essential reading—it is a powerful weapon in the fight to saveour planet.”
—Ian Angus, editor of
climateandcapitalism.com

“Finally, a book that bridges the best of the scholarly and activist literature’s in socialist ecology! Sophisticated and compelling,
eschewing academic jargons ‘postmodern’ and otherwise, Ecology and Socialism more than competently champions a Marxist approach to environmental crisis and the kind of economic democracy needed to achieve an ecologically friendly system of production and human development.”
—Paul Burkett, author of
Marxism and Ecological Economics

“Ecology and Socialism is not merely about what’s wrong in the world where fossil fuels rule our lives. It also presents a blueprint for change…a cogent and accessible look at one of today’s pressing social issues through the viewpoint of socialist activists and thinkers.”
—Ron Jacobs for Dissident Voice
