How Did We Get Into This Mess, by George Monbiot (Verso 2016)

Neil's picture

George Monbiot is an uncompromising writer, a Guardian columnist and author of a number of books on corporate and political behaviour, especially its impact on the natural world. This book is a collection of his journalism from the last 10 or so years arranged around loose themes. While very critical of the current consensus, Monbiot is clear-sighted and reasonable, and offers practical solutions. He is always provocative and controversial, and very readable. A powerful, inspiring book.
