Review

'Carter's systematic reevaluation of the environmental crisis' many causes and consequences is very useful for those wanting a succinct but pointed indictment of what causes ecological ills.' - Timothy W. Luke, Environmental Ethics Vol. 23, No. 1, Spring 2001

I found Mr. Carter's subject extremely interesting and overdue.
His research appears thorough and his arguments very convincing without appearing patronizing or annoying in a `tree hugging - hippie greeny' way. On the contrary, I found his style very level headed and convincing even to a cynic of the green movement.
My only problem with the style is that, as a lay person, I found the technical and political aspects a bit hard to get my head around at times. However, working too many night shifts was probably the reason for that.
My thanks to Mr. Carter for this important work!
PS Please publish a cheaper soft cover version so more can afford and read it.

Format: Hardcover
Carter's book 'A Radical Green Political Theory' is a fully fleshed out articulation of his anarchist argument expanding (and often opposing) G.A. Cohen's Karl Marx's Theory of History. Although the book is presented as a piece of eco-theory it is primarily a well thought out anarchist argument. Using some of the essential framework that Cohen laid out thirty years prior, Carter makes a good case for identifying 'the state' as a serious culprit in the failings of modern society in relation to the environment but also more broadly. He addresses the common Marxist error of discounting the importance of the state by showing that it does hold an explanatory role.

All in all a very good book. If you are not familiar with some of Cohen's arguments from Karl Marx's Theory of History you might have a hard time following in some areas.
