About this book

At the heart of the green debate are a set of basic contradictions concerning beliefs and actions. This book reveals the problems associated with these contradictions, including adherence to decentralized political forms while accepting authoritarian intervention on behalf of the environment; a belief that this is the politics of the new age but in practice split between left and right; a rejection of the rationalist scientific project and a reliance on the lessons of the science of ecology.

Media reviews

'For the first time, Radcliffe's book puts the vital democracy/dictatorship debate in green politics into its proper historical context. His conclusion that greens cannot and should not do without democracy is crucial for the environmental movements, as well as for ongoing debates regarding constitutional reform.' - Andrew Dobson, author of Green Political Thought, Department of Politics, Keele University 'This book is a useful additional to the environmental literature. Radcliffe steers a path between the theory and practice of Green politics in an informative, comprehensive and lively way.' - Robert Garner, author of Environmental Politics, Department of Politics, University of Leicester
