    Melbourne University Press 2009; Not Available

    The impacts of climate change can already be felt in society and on the Earth itself.

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 59.95

    We urgently need to transform to a low carbon society, yet our progress is painfully slow, in part because there is widespread public concern that this will require sacrifice and high costs.

    Climate change is the greatest challenge of the age and yet fierce disagreement still exists over the best way to tackle the problem or, indeed, about whether it should be tackled at all. In this original book, Amanda Machin draws on radical democratic theory to show that such disagreement does not have to hinder collective action; rather, democratic... more...
