  1. What Nature Does for Britain by Tony Juniper

    What Nature Does for Britain by Tony Juniper

    £8.99
    Add to basket »
    From the peat bogs and woodlands that help to secure our water supply, to the bees and soils that produce most of the food we eat, Britain is rich in 'natural capital'. Yet we take supplies of clean water and secure food for granted, rarely considering the free work nature does for Britain. In fact for years we have damaged the systems that sustain us under the illusion that we are keeping prices down, through intensive farming, drainage of bogs, clearing forests and turning rivers into canals. As Tony Juniper's new analysis shows, however, the ways in which we meet our needs often doesn't make economic sense. Through vivid first hand accounts and inspirational examples of how the damage is being repaired, Juniper takes readers on a journey to a different Britain from the one many assume we inhabit, not a country where nature is worthless or an impediment to progress, but the real Britain, the one where we are supported by nature, wildlife and natural systems at almost every turn. Don't forget that by buying this book here you are helping to support Friends of the Earth.   Learn More

  8. The Bleeding Edge by Bob Hughes

    The Bleeding Edge by Bob Hughes

    Capitalism likes us to believe in the steady, inevitable march of progress, from the abacus to the iPad. But the historical record tells of innumerable roads not taken, all of which could have led to better worlds, and still can. We live in a world mad drunk on technology and political stupidity. Bob Hughes’ new book says more about this poisonous combination – its causes, consequences, and possible cures – than anything I have previously read. This is an ambitious and important book. - Annie Bonny, Pirate blog. Hughes nails inequality to the wall with precision and passion. He weaves together multiple strands to make the case against inequality, from economics through anthropology; from evolutionary theory through social epidemiology. Then, once he has constructed his airtight logic, he colors it in with the emotional dimensions of life lived under oppressive hierarchy - or empowering egalitarianism. Hughes' book dares us to stop begging for half-measures and instead demand our human birthright: full social and economic equality! - Deborah S. Rogers , PhD President, Initiative for Equality Affiliated Researcher, Stanford University, Institute for Research in the Social Sciences.   Learn More
