Post-growth Politics

release date: Jun 19, 2018
Post-growth Politics
This book uses a critical political economy approach to develop an historically and politically grounded set of strategies for states to move toward a post-growth, decarbonised global economy. It begins by examining the social and ecological costs of and limits to economic growth and determines that significant decarbonisation of the global economy can only be achieved if conventional growth-based economies are replaced by an alternative post-growth economy. Set apart from many other works in the field by its critical political economy approach to policy development, this book offers the reader three distinctive features. First, it places the analysis in historical context in order to demonstrate how the global political economy is constantly changing with respect to distributions of wealth, power and fundamental norms, and explores how states might harness and transform these contingent patterns in a post-growth direction. Second, the book is not only concerned with developing and advocating post-growth policies, but also with how these measures can be incorporated into the high-level domestic and international strategies pursued by states to ensure their political legitimacy and economic and geopolitical survival. Third, rather than proposing an idealised and politically naïve model of socioecological transformation, the proposed post-growth policy framework is highly cognisant of the geopolitical and international economic pressures facing states and demonstrates how these can be managed in the transition toward a post-growth economy. This book represents an invaluable resource for policymakers, academics, activists and students wishing to study or contribute to the transition to a post-growth, decarbonised economy.

Bad

release date: Aug 15, 2017
Bad
BAD is all around us, influencing and guiding everything we do. We are constrained by it, hurt by it and delighted by it. Even if you think you're doing good, you're just raising bulwarks against the bad. Bad comes in many subtle forms. Peter Ferguson shows how to be aware of them, how they can affect us and how to work with them. But this is no earnest treatise. It's also a meditation. And a bit of a romp.

The Sisters Grimm

The Sisters Grimm
After the shocking ending of The Everafter War, this book picks up with Sabrina, Daphne, and Puck stuck in the Book of Everafter, where all the fairy tales are stored and enchanted characters can change their destinies. The girls (and Puck) must chase the Master through a series of stories, where they’re willing to change what they need in order to save their baby brother. Soon, however, they are confronted by the Editor—the book’s guardian—who, along with an army of tiny monsters known as Revisers, threatens the children with dire consequences if they don’t stick to the stories. As they chase their quarry and dodge the Revisers, they meet Alice, Mowgli, Jack the Giant Killer, Hansel and Gretel, the Headless Horseman, and more. But will they find their brother in time?

Darkness in Paris

Darkness in Paris
In May 1940, Germany invaded France and defeated the Allies in six weeks. It seemed that the Nazis were unbeatable. In response, France mobilized five million men while the British put up less than one-tenth of that number. While the British gathered around their radios to hear Churchill make defiant speeches, the French suffered invasion, defeat, occupation, and the imposition of a Fascist regime. Here is the inside story of that fateful year during World War II from Paris and London, brought brilliantly to life.
