Facing the anthropocene : fossil capitalism and the crisis of the earth system by Ian Angus( )

15 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and French and held by 933 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Science tells us that a new and dangerous stage in planetary evolution has begun--the Anthropocene, a time of rising temperatures, extreme weather, rising oceans, and mass species extinctions. Humanity faces not just more pollution or warmer weather, but a crisis of the Earth System. If business as usual continues, this century will be marked by rapid deterioration of our physical, social, and economic environment. Large parts of Earth will become uninhabitable, and civilization itself will be threatened. Facing the Anthropocene shows what has caused this planetary emergency, and what we must do to meet the challenge. Bridging the gap between Earth System science and ecological Marxism, Ian Angus examines not only the latest scientific findings about the physical causes and consequences of the Anthropocene transition, but also the social and economic trends that underlie the crisis. Cogent and compellingly written, Facing the Anthropocene offers a unique synthesis of natural and social science that illustrates how capitalism's inexorable drive for growth, powered by the rapid burning of fossil fuels that took millions of years to form, has driven our world to the brink of disaster. Survival in the Anthropocene, Angus argues, requires radical social change, replacing fossil capitalism with a new, ecosocialist civilization"--Provided by publisher
Too many people? : population, immigration, and the environmental crisis by Ian Angus( )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Too Many People? provides a clear, well-documented, and popularly written refutation of the idea that "overpopulation" is a major cause of environmental destruction, arguing that a focus on human numbers not only misunderstands the causes of the crisis, it dangerously weakens the movement for real solutions. No other book challenges modern overpopulation theory so clearly and comprehensively, providing invaluable insights for the layperson and environmental scholars alike
Canadian Bolsheviks : the early years of the Communist Party of Canada by Ian Angus( Book )

11 editions published between 1981 and 2004 in English and French and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ten years later, the party was destroyed. Most of its founding leaders were expelled, and three quarters of its membership dropped out. The Communist Party abandoned the program it had adopted in its early years, and turned its back on its principles. The organization still called itself Communist, but it was now "Tim Buck's Party." It had been transformed from a revolutionary party into an agent of the new ruling caste in Moscow. In Canadian Bolsheviks, Ian Angus describes and explains the first attempt to build a Leninist party on Canadian soil, showing why it succeeded so well at first, and why it ultimately failed. The Second Edition of a book that has been widely hailed as a path breaking work, "the best yet to appear" on the origins of Canadian communism."
A redder shade of green : intersections of science and socialism by Ian Angus( )

9 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the Anthropocene advances, people across the red-green political spectrum seek to understand and halt our deepening ecological crisis. Environmentalists, scientists, and ecosocialists share concerns about the misuse and overuse of natural resources, but often differ on explanations and solutions. Some blame environmental disasters on overpopulation. Others wonder if Darwin's evolutionary theories disprove Marx's revolutionary views, or if capitalist history contradicts Anthropocene science. Some ask if all this worry about climate change and the ecosystem might lead to a "catastrophism" that weakens efforts to heal the planet. Ian Angus responds to these concerns in A Redder Shade of Green, with a fresh, insightful clarity, bringing socialist values to science, and scientific rigor to socialism. He challenges not only mainstream green thought, but also radicals who misuse or misrepresent environmental science. Angus's argument that confronting environmental destruction requires both cutting-edge scientific research and a Marxist understanding of capitalism makes this book an essential resource in the fight to prevent environmental destruction in the 21st century

Une planète trop peuplée? : le mythe populationniste, l'immigration et la crise écologique by Ian Angus( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in French and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La population mondiale devrait dépasser les neuf milliards d'individus en 2050, soit trois fois plus qu'en 1950, et certains voient dans cet accroissement démographique l'une des causes principales de la destruction environnementale. Mais y a-t-il véritablement trop de monde sur Terre ? La crise écologique actuelle est-elle effectivement attribuable à une surpopulation ? Que se cache-t-il derrière cette idée malthusienne qui divise le mouvement écologiste depuis le début des années 1960 ? Dans cet ouvrage extrêmement bien documenté, Ian Angus et Simon Butler déboulonnent de façon magistrale ce mythe populationniste qui a réussi à séduire autant les conservateurs de droite que les écologistes sincères. Chiffres à l'appui, les auteurs renversent cette grave erreur de diagnostic et démontrent avec rigueur et limpidité que les moyens prônés par les populationnistes, à savoir un meilleur contrôle des naissances (principalement dans les pays du Sud) et une réduction substantielle de l'immigration (dans les pays du Nord), sont de fausses pistes pour protéger l'environnement. Rejeter la responsabilité des changements climatiques et des dégâts environnementaux sur les plus démunis de la planète participe tout simplement d'une écologisation de la haine
