About this book
Written by two of the most prominent members of the UK Green Party, this book is an accessible and concise statement of the Green alternative to globalisation. Arguing that globalisation marginalises poor people, threatens livelihoods, and is destroying the environment, the authors demonstrate the urgent need for a new approach - Global Localism - that thinks globally, but acts locally.
