Building Fair and Sustainable Economies
Edited by Anitra Nelson and Frans Timmerman
Examines the failure of the money-based global economy and how we might live in more sustainable, equitable ways. A textbook and manifesto for change.
“The collapse of capitalism will also be an end to money as the prime regulator of society—an eventuality both hard to imagine and necessary to understand. Anitra Nelson and Frans Timmerman have assembled an indispensable collection for those who are bold enough to explore this dramatic prospect. Life Without Money is an essential guidebook for the great debate now unfolding and around which our hopes for a worthwhile future unfold.” – Joel Kovel, author of Enemy of Nature (2002; 2007) and Overcoming Zionism (Pluto, 2007)
“A timely contribution to an under-researched and under-reported area of economics: the theory of money and proposals for alternatives to the globalised capitalist financial system. I would recommend it to anyone interested in finding ways to develop an economy that functions without money.” – Molly Scott Cato, Reader in Green Economics, Cardiff School of Management
Inside the Worldwide Ecosocialist Movement
Derek Wall. Foreword by Hugo Blanco
A unique insider view of how ecosocialism has developed and a practical guide to focused ecosocialist action.
“For too long the official left has ignored, even attacked ecology. We should be grateful to Derek Wall for his book, The Rise of the Green Left. It is time to recognise that the rights of people rest on the rights of Mother Earth. And this book helps us move in that direction.” – Vandana Shiva, Director of the Foundation for Science, Technology, and Ecology, New Delhi; author, activist, and winner of the Alternative Nobel Prize
“There is no one more tuned in to the great range of struggles for ecosocialism across the world and more capable of presenting them in practical and down-to-earth terms than Derek Wall.” – Joel Kovel, author of The Enemy of Nature (2nd Edition, 2007)
The Economics of Anti-Capitalist, Anti-Globalist and Radical Green Movements
‘A thoughtful and inspiring guide to the different varieties of anti-capitalist thought.’ Caroline Lucas
“Here, there and everywhere, human beings are picking themselves up from the rubble of capital’s eco-destruction and assembling the means for a worthwhile existence. Derek Wall does a beautiful job of weaving these threads into a strong fabric. The children of the future will look back on Babylon and Beyond with gratitude.” – Joel Kovel, Distinguished Professor of Social Studies, Bard College, New York and author of The Enemy of Nature: The End of Capitalism or the End of the World?
“Derek Wall has produced a thoughtful and inspiring guide to capitalism and anti-capitalism. This really is the first book that carefully explains the different varieties of anti-capitalist
