The age of consent : a manifesto for a new world order by George Monbiot( Book )
20 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"What Monbiot offers in The Age of Consent is a truly global perspective, a sense of history, a defence of democracy, and an understanding of power and how it might be captured from those unfit to retain it. The ingenious solutions he suggests for some of the planet's most pressing problems mark him as perhaps the most realistic utopian of our time and a man whose passion is infectious and whose ideas, many will surely come to agree, are becoming irresistible."--BOOK JACKET

Feral : rewilding the land, the sea, and human life by George Monbiot( Book )
5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 340 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
To be an environmentalist early in the twenty-first century is always to be defending, arguing, acknowledging the hurdles we face in our efforts to protect wild places and fight climate change. But let's be honest: hedging has never inspired anyone. So what if we stopped hedging? What if we grounded our efforts to solve environmental problems in hope instead, and let nature make our case for us? That's what George Monbiot does in Feral, a lyrical, unabashedly romantic vision of how, by inviting nature back into our lives, we can simultaneously cure our "ecological boredom" and begin repairing centuries of environmental damage. Monbiot takes readers on an enchanting journey around the world to explore ecosystems that have been "rewilded": freed from human intervention and allowed--in some cases for the first time in millennia--to resume their natural ecological processes. We share his awe, and wonder, as he kayaks among dolphins and seabirds off the coast of Wales and wanders the forests of Eastern Europe, where lynx and wolf packs are reclaiming their ancient hunting grounds. Through his eyes, we see environmental success--and begin to envision a future world where humans and nature are no longer separate and antagonistic, but are together part of a single, healing world

Bring on the apocalypse : six arguments for global justice by George Monbiot( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this collection of essays on money, religion, war, power, culture and nature, the author explains why we are heading into an uncertain future in which peace and sound politics are paramount to our survival. From his attack on the countries that deny the existence of global warming to his rally against the injustices of the Iraq war, the author turns his gaze on the aspects of modernity that most endanger the prevailing world order. With characteristic precision, he offers unassailable proof that the desecration of the resources on which we all depend threatens the peace, equality - and very existence - of humanity. This book is an urgent wake-up call that we cannot afford to ignore. -- Publisher details
The lottery of birth ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Do you shape the world or does the world shape you? Is freedom something we are born with or something we must work to attain? Offering a torrent of mind-expanding ideas and information THE LOTTERY OF BIRTH is going to make you think again about what it means to be free. Drawing on the best minds in philosophy, history, psychology, physics and economics, it employs decades of evidence to interrogate what we are, where we are and where we want to be. From birth onwards our minds are a battleground of competing forces. The outcome of this battle determines the society we create. This is a film about the cultural, educational, political and commercial forces that shape our identities, often in ways that limit both our personal and political freedom. Whether you're into philosophy, economics or simply being a better person than you were born to be, you can't afford to miss this film. THE LOTTERY OF BIRTH is the first film in a groundbreaking new three-part documentary series: CREATING FREEDOM. The series as a whole explores the most urgent questions of power, control and freedom in modern democracies ..."--Mangu.TV website
