“LAND AND LABOUR
Marxism, Ecology and Human History”
a book launch meeting
Co-hosted by Huddersfield Socialist Workers Party and Bookmarks Publications
Introduced by the author
6.30pm Wednesday 12th February at Brian Jackson House, 2 New North Parade, Huddersfield HD1 5JP (overlooking the train station).
Martin Empson’s new book argues that, while humans have always changed the world, capitalism unleashes the potential for environmental disaster. Come and hear Martin introduce his book, and take part in a discussion about the alternative to capitalism.
“This superb book examines humanity’s dynamic relationships with nature, from the dawn of civilisation to modern times, with a view to better understanding the social roots of today’s environmental crises. Engaging, comprehensive and well written, it’s an important contribution to the field of Marxist ecology.“ Simon Butler, co-author, Too Many People? Population, Immigration and the Environmental Crisis
“Martin Empson puts today’s global environmental crisis into historical context, showing how humanity has used and abused the rest of nature for thousands of years, and how in a few hundred years capitalism has brought us to the brink of disaster. It is essential reading for everyone who wants to know how we got into this mess- and how we can get out of it.” Ian Angus, editor, Climate and Capitalism
