Leading political and environmental commentator on where we have gone
wrong, and what to do about it Without countervailing voices, naming and
challenging power, political freedom withers and dies. Without
countervailing voices, a better world can never materialise. Without
countervailing voices, wells will still be dug and bridges will still be
built, but only for the few. Food will still be grown, but it will not
reach the mouths of the poor. New medicines will be developed, but they
will be inaccessible to many of those in need. George Monbiot is one of
the most vocal, and eloquent, critics of the current consensus. How Did We
Get into this Mess?, based on his powerful journalism, assesses the state
we are now in: the devastation of the natural world, the crisis of
inequality, the corporate takeover of nature, our obsessions with growth
and profit and the decline of the political debate over what to do. While
his diagnosis of the problems in front of us is clear-sighted and
reasonable, he also develops solutions to challenge the politics of fear.
How do we stand up to the powerful when they seem to have all the weapons?
What can we do to prepare our children for an uncertain future?
Controversial, clear but always rigorously argued, How Did We Get into this
Mess? makes a persuasive case for change in our everyday lives, our
politics and economics, the ways we treat each other and the natural world.
