THE POLITICS OF HOPE
After the sound and fury of Britain's general election, the new, July/August issue of Resurgence & Ecologist magazine offers an antidote to political uncertainty. Instead, we present our own manifesto for a world which moves away from the illusions of the perpetual pursuit of economic growth and consumerism to one based on more profound, lasting values -- sustainability, social justice, and a greater awareness of our place in Nature.
In complimentary articles, Peter Reason and Niki Harré undertake pilgrimages – one to a closer understanding of Nature, the other in a search for a sense of community. Kirkpatrick Sale argues that that small, resilient communities rise to the challenge when larger states and institutions fail. In an exclusive interview with Satish Kumar, Pierre Rabhi, the French-Algerian thinker who has championed ideas of simple living in Nature, talks about the challenges of the future, and Peter Tatchell campaigns for animal rights.
There's hope to be found, too, in our interview with Carlos Magdalena, a pioneering Kew Gardens botanist who is helping to preserve some of the world's most endangered plants, and in Hugh Warwick's essay on the lines in the landscape that may yet point to new forms of conservation. Our arts pages are as beautiful as ever, and our books reviews offer new reading that lifts the spirit.
All in all, we believe it's a manifesto to support – Resurgence for a better world.
We hope you enjoy our new issue.
