Overview


Cultural Writing. Politics. Environmentalism. POLITICAL ECOSYSTEMS is a highly original text that argues those of us who are left-progressives and environmentalists need to engage in rigorous self-examination, better assessing their political strengths and weaknesses, if they ever hope to achieve our goals. Harpignies argues left/progressives must cultivate more sophisticated ways of looking at the culture, by addressing little-discussed, but very real divides-from the communitarian/libertarian dichotomy to that of techno-utopians and neo-Luddites. This thoroughly researched yet accessible book is a polemic, but one that does not promote specific views and positions. The book is ultimately a toolbox to help progressives expand their understanding of politics and help them develop better strategies for championing their cause.
