Resumen:
Tomado de la pasta: "This is one of the three most important books to have been written on the environmental question in recent years. We now have plenty of texts on the relationships between socialism, feminism and ecologism, but Wissenburg is the first political theorist to realize that perhaps the most important contemporary engagement is between liberalism and the environmental imperative. Can environmental sustainability be squared with the free society? Received wisdom is that it can't; too many of liberalism's basic principles are threatened by the environmental agenda, which seems to revolve around a mix of taxes, obligations and prohibitions, combined with attempts to get individuals to subscribe to a determinate version of the green good life. Wissenburg's view, however, is that we can have a free and a green society, and his development of a theory of green liberalism is a turning point in the nascent discipline of environmental political theory. Written with verve, intelligence and sophistication, this ever readable and often witty account is essential reading for liberals and environmentalists - that is, just about everyone." --
