Since the late 1980s, ecological thought and the European eco-movement have gone through a phase of fundamental transformation which has been widely acknowledged but not yet theorised in any satisfactory way. This important text questions why radical ecological criticism has had so little impact on contemporary society, despite the urgency of the issues it highlights. The book offers a challenging theoretical critique of ecological thought itself.


'An extraordinary book … it is extremely well researched and based on a number of interesting theorists and theoretical debates.'

- John Barry, Environmental Values, Vol 13, 2004, No. 1
