About this book

A witty and controversial look at the development of green parties and ideology since World War II in England, Germany and the United States. While arguing that the movement has had a major impact on public awareness concerning environmental topics, Bramwell nevertheless maintains that the greens have failed to create a new politics because of their own contradictions, and that the green frontier of the future lies not with political parties but with international organizations.
`Her facts are fascinating....For Dr Bramwell....there is always a sting in the tail' - The Listener.
