Over the past four decades the world has seen a 'green awakening'. Green parties have been elected to parliaments and councils all over the world. A common set of environmental priorities have been promoted by green internationalisation and these parties are playing an increasing role at all levels of political decision-making. Will this awakening continue or will the greens be corrupted by power? What impact has their politics had? Will green thinking be able to compete with other ideologies in coping with the problems of the 21st century? Green Parties, Green Future analyses over a hundred of these parties' experience from all over the world. It reveals the story of the expansion and development of the movement, from local environmental groups to national and global decision-makers.

Marine Conservation - People, Ideas and Action (Paperback): Bob Earll Marine Conservation - People, Ideas and Action (Paperback)
Bob Earll
R577 R533 Discovery Miles 5 330 Save R44 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In the last 50 years marine conservation has grown from almost nothing to become a major topic of global activity involving many people and organisations. Marine conservation activities have been applied to a huge diversity of species, habitats, ecosystems and whole seas. Many marine conservation actions have focused on human impacts on the marine environment from development and pollution to the impacts of fisheries. Whilst science has provided the backbone of thinking on marine conservation, perhaps the biggest change over this period has been the use of an ever-increasing range of techniques and disciplines to further marine conservation ends. Bob Earll explores what marine conservation involves in practice by providing a synthesis of the main developments from the viewpoints of 19 leading practitioners and pioneers who have helped shape its progress and successes. Their narratives highlight the diversity and richness of activity, and the realities of delivering marine conservation in practice with reference to a host of projects and case studies. Many of these narratives demonstrate how innovative conservationists have been - often developing novel approaches to problems where little information and no frameworks exist. The case studies described are based on a wide range of European and international projects. This book takes an in-depth look at the reality of delivering marine conservation in practice, where achieving change is often a complicated process, with barriers to overcome that have nothing to do with science. Marine conservationists will often be working with stakeholders for whom marine conservation is not a priority. This book aims to help readers describe and understand those realities, and shows that successful and inspirational projects can be delivered against the odds.

Nature's Allies - Eight Conservationists Who Changed Our World (Hardcover, None Ed.): Larry A. Nielsen Nature's Allies - Eight Conservationists Who Changed Our World (Hardcover, None Ed.)

R489 R431 Discovery Miles 4 310 Save R58 (12%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Eight engaging biographies to inspire a new generation of conservationists. It's easy to feel small and powerless in the face of big environmental challenges. When climate change forces species to fight for their very survival and the planet's last places of wilderness are growing smaller and smaller, what can a single person do? But environmentalism's greatest change-makers started out living ordinary lives. In Nature's Allies, Larry Nielsen uses the inspiring stories of conservation pioneers to show that through passion and perseverance we can each make a difference. In eight engaging biographies, John Muir, Ding Darling, Aldo Leopold, Rachel Carson, Chico Mendes, Billy Frank Jr., Wangari Maathai, and Gro Harlem Brundtland, we meet individuals who have little in common except that they all made a lasting mark on our world. Some famous and some little known to readers, they all spoke out to protect wilderness, wildlife, fisheries, rainforests, and wetlands. They exposed polluting practices and fought for social justice. They wrote books, marched, performed acts of civil disobedience, and, in one case, were martyred for their defence of nature.Nature's Allies pays tribute to them all as it seeks to rally a new generation of conservationists to follow in their footsteps.

A Good Life on a Finite Earth - The Political Economy of Green Growth (Paperback): Daniel J. Fiorino A Good Life on a Finite Earth - The Political Economy of Green Growth (Paperback)
Daniel J. Fiorino
R498 Discovery Miles 4 980 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The potential conflict among economic and ecological goals has formed the central fault line of environmental politics in the United States and most other countries since the 1970s. The accepted view is that efforts to protect the environment will detract from economic growth, jobs, and global competitiveness. Conversely, much advocacy on behalf of the environment focuses on the need to control growth and avoid its more damaging effects. This offers a stark choice between prosperity and growth, on the one hand, and ecological degradation on the other. Stopping or reversing growth in most countries is unrealistic, economically risky, politically difficult, and is likely to harm the very groups that should be protected. At the same time, a strategy of unguided "growth above all" would cause ecological catastrophe. Over the last decade, the concept of green growth - the idea that the right mix of policies, investments, and technologies will lead to beneficial growth within ecological limits - has become central to global and national debates and policy due to the financial crisis and climate change. As Daniel J. Fiorino argues, in order for green growth to occur, ecological goals must be incorporated into the structure of the economic and political systems. In this book, he looks at green growth, a vast topic that has heretofore not been systematically covered in the literature on environmental policy and politics. Fiorino looks at its role in global, national, and local policy making; its relationship to sustainable development; controversies surrounding it (both from the left and right); its potential role in ameliorating inequality; and the policy strategies that are linked with it. The book also examines the political feasibility of green growth as a policy framework. While he focuses on the United States, Fiorino will draw comparisons to green growth policy in other countries, including Germany, China, and Brazil.

R330 R295 Discovery Miles 2 950 Save R35 (11%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

We are used to hearing that the climate crisis is serious, but still tractable if we start acting on it soon. The reality is different. Things are going to get much worse, for a long time, whatever we now do - though hardly anyone wants to admit it. This book from the Green House collective offers climate honesty. The time for focusing primarily on mitigation is over. We now need to adapt to the dark reality of climate breakdown. But this means a deep reframing of our entire way of life. The book explores how transformative adaptation might enable us to confront escalating climate chaos while not giving up hope. Facing Up to Climate Reality is a book for those brave enough to abandon the illusion of continuing normality, and embark on a harder, truer journey. Catastrophe or hope? Read this book and make up your own mind.

A rhino in my garden - Love, life and the African bush (Paperback): Conita Walker A rhino in my garden - Love, life and the African bush (Paperback)
Conita Walker
R240 R191 Discovery Miles 1 910 Save R49 (20%) Shipped within 4 - 10 working days

Conita Walker tells the story of the love match that lured her from the world of international air travel to plunge, somewhat naively, into the life of a conservationist. It is a tale of adventure, mishaps, humour and heartbreak. Conita’s life begins on a remote missionary station; she survives the WWII bombing of Berlin, witnesses the defeat of political systems in both Europe and South Africa, and eventually finds her true mission in the rescue and hand-rearing of black and white rhino orphans. There was a baby hippo to rescue and re-wild too, conservation organisations to found and support, wilderness battles to fight, but it was the rhinos that became her life’s work. Her first male calf, named Bwana, was raised in her back garden, followed by a female hippo calf who grew up in her washroom, and eventually returned to the Palala River and has produced numerous offspring. The supreme test of her mothering skills was the raising of a very seriously injured black rhino female named Moeng who was saved in the nick of time by the dedicated work of veterinarian Dr Andre Uys. This rhino calf, along with her predecessor ‘siblings’, were to be viewed up close by thousands of school children who came to Conita’s garden while attending the environmental school nearby.

R712 R560 Discovery Miles 5 600 Save R152 (21%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Environmental Activism on the Ground draws upon a wide range of interdisciplinary scholarship to examine small scale, local environmental activism, paying particular attention to Indigenous experiences. It illuminates the questions that are central to the ongoing evolution of the environmental movement while reappraising the history and character of late twentieth and early twenty-first environmentalism in Canada, the United States, and beyond. This collection considers the different ways in which Indigenous and non-Indigenous activists have worked to achieve significant change. It examines attempts to resist exploitative and damaging resource developments, and the establishment of parks, heritage sites, and protected areas that recognize the indivisibility of cultural and natural resources. It pays special attention to the thriving environmentalism of the 1960s through the 1980s, an era which saw the rise of major organizations such as Greenpeace along with the flourishing of local and community-based environmental activism. Environmental Activism on the Ground emphasizes the effects of local and Indigenous activism, offering lessons and directions from the ground up. It demonstrates that the modern environmental movement has been as much a small-scale, ordinary activity as a large-scale, elite one.

Make It a Green Peace! - The Rise of Countercultural Environmentalism (Paperback): Frank Zelko Make It a Green Peace! - The Rise of Countercultural Environmentalism (Paperback)
Frank Zelko
R512 Discovery Miles 5 120 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The emergence of Greenpeace in the late 1960s from a loose-knit group of anti-nuclear and anti-whaling activists fundamentally changed the nature of environmentalism-its purpose, philosophy, and tactics-around the world. And yet there has been no comprehensive objective history of Greenpeace's origins-until now. Make It a Green Peace! draws upon meeting minutes, internal correspondence, manifestos, philosophical writings, and interviews with former members to offer the first full account of the origins of what has become the most recognizable environmental non-governmental organization in the world. Situating Greenpeace within the peace movement and counterculture of the 1960s, Frank Zelko provides a much deeper treatment of the group's groundbreaking brand of radical, media-savvy, direct-action environmentalism than has been previously attempted. Zelko traces the complex intellectual and cultural roots of Greenpeace to the various protest movements of the 1950s and 1960s, highlighting the influence of Quakerism-with its practice of bearing witness-Native American spirituality, and the non-violent resistance of Gandhi. Unlike the more strait-laced, less confrontational Sierra Club and Audubon Society, early Greenpeacers smoked dope, dropped acid, wore their hair long, and put their bodies on the line-interposing themselves between the harpoons of whalers and the clubs of seal-hunters-to save the animals and achieve what they hoped would be a lasting transformation in the way humans regarded the natural world. And while it may not have achieved its most revolutionary goals, Greenpeace inarguably created a heightened awareness of environmental issues that endures to this day. Narrating the key campaigns and arguments among the group's early members, Make It a Green Peace! vividly captures all the drama, pathos, and occasional moments of absurd comic relief of Greenpeace's tumultuous first decade.

How better information and better access to it improves the quality of our decisions and makes for a more vibrant participatory society. Information is power. It drives commerce, protects nations, and forms the backbone of systems that range from health care to high finance. Yet despite the avalanche of data available in today's information age, neither institutions nor individuals get the information they truly need to make well-informed decisions. Faulty information and sub-optimal decision-making create an imbalance of power that is exaggerated as governments and corporations amass enormous databases on each of us. Who has more power: the government, in possession of uncounted terabytes of data (some of it obtained by cybersnooping), or the ordinary citizen, trying to get in touch with a government agency? In Missed Information, David Sarokin and Jay Schulkin explore information-not information technology, but information itself-as a central part of our lives and institutions. They show that providing better information and better access to it improves the quality of our decisions and makes for a more vibrant participatory society. Sarokin and Schulkin argue that freely flowing information helps systems run more efficiently and that incomplete information does just the opposite. It's easier to comparison shop for microwave ovens than for doctors or hospitals because of information gaps that hinder the entire health-care system. Better information about such social ills as child labor and pollution can help consumers support more sustainable products. The authors examine the opacity of corporate annual reports, the impenetrability of government secrets, and emerging techniques of "information foraging." The information imbalance of power can be reconfigured, they argue, with greater and more meaningful transparency from government and corporations.

R1,230 R942 Discovery Miles 9 420 Save R288 (23%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

By utilising the lenses of institutions and culture -- examining the relationship between regulator and regulated, dominant regulatory style, and interaction with the institutions of government -- this book challenges the contemporary wisdom that recommends holistic and integrated institutional forms that result in the decimation of existing cultural identifications. No sense of bureaucratic mission can be established where cultural identifications have been destroyed, regardless of the ingenuity of the institutional form adopted. The absence of such bureaucratic mission results in green bureaucracies that are likely to fail in the pursuit of organisational goals. Examining motivations shows why cultural identifications within an organisation must be congruent with institutional structures so that these identifications can be established.

Imagine yourself alone in the wilderness holding two lawbreaking suspects at gunpoint. No onlookers, no backup. Just you in the dark, in the middle of nowhere, with suspects who would cheerfully kill you if they thought they could get away with it. Bob Lee takes readers deep into the days and nights of Florida game wardens, telling stories of officers who do much more than check licenses. Shoot-outs. Survival. Rescue. Powerboat chases. Black-market gator poaching. Jumping through truck windows to stop turkey poachers, shredding boat propellers on underwater logs, trapping airboats in wild hog muck, ferrying crates of baby sea turtles, hunting for lost persons in remote areas, getting stuck under a 500-pound all-terrain vehicle at the bottom of a sinkhole-these are just some of the situations game wardens find themselves in. From Live Oak to the Everglades, from the cattle ranches west of Lake Okeechobee to the inshore fishing grounds of Pine Island, these adventures span the state. Discover the excitement and danger that game wardens face every day on the job.

Readers familiar with the first three editions of Ecology and Classification of North American Freshwater Invertebrates (edited by J.H. Thorp and A.P. Covich) will welcome the comprehensive revision and expansion of that trusted professional reference manual and educational textbook from a single North American tome into a developing multi-volume series covering inland water invertebrates of the world. The series entitled Thorp and Covich's Freshwater Invertebrates (edited by J.H. Thorp) begins with the current Volume I: Ecology and General Biology (edited by J.H. Thorp and D.C. Rogers), which is designed as a companion volume for the remaining books in the series. Those following volumes provide taxonomic coverage for specific zoogeographic regions of the world, starting with Keys to Nearctic Fauna (Vol. II) and Keys to Palaearctic Fauna (Vol. III). Volume I maintains the ecological and general biological focus of the previous editions but now expands coverage globally in all chapters, includes more taxonomic groups (e.g., chapters on individual insect orders), and covers additional functional topics such as invasive species, economic impacts, and functional ecology. As in previous editions, the 4th edition of Ecology and Classification of North American Freshwater Invertebrates is designed for use by professionals in universities, government agencies, and private companies as well as by undergraduate and graduate students.

This entirely new book takes us deep into the world of moles. In the lonely darkness of their tunnels hunger forces moles on a cycle of digging, patrolling and eating, broken in spring as males drive themselves to exhaustion on mating forays, and females raise babies in warm nests. When their time comes young moles make dangerous journeys above ground-just the start of the perils that lie ahead. Sadly, we humans add to their woes, holding moles' representatives in literature in far more affection than we do the real animal.The book is beautifully illustrated throughout by Belinda Atkinson.

Stephen Milder
R571 Discovery Miles 5 710 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Greening Democracy explains how nuclear energy became a seminal political issue and motivated new democratic engagement in West Germany during the 1970s. Using interviews, as well as the archives of environmental organizations and the Green party, the book traces the development of anti-nuclear protest from the grassroots to parliaments. It argues that worries about specific nuclear reactors became the basis for a widespread anti-nuclear movement only after government officials' unrelenting support for nuclear energy caused reactor opponents to become concerned about the state of their democracy. Surprisingly, many citizens thought transnationally, looking abroad for protest strategies, cooperating with activists in other countries, and conceiving of 'Europe' as a potential means of circumventing recalcitrant officials. At this nexus between local action and global thinking, anti-nuclear protest became the basis for citizens' increasing engagement in self-governance, expanding their conception of democracy well beyond electoral politics and helping to make quotidian personal concerns political.

This book describes the origins and character of the global Appropriate Technology movement, identifying its three major components - the environmental, the social and the economic. The author discusses appropriate technologies in the bread, brick, cement and sugar industries in Africa and Asia. The reasons for the increasing attractiveness of small-scale production in the industrially advanced countries are described, and the author aims to show how this approach can open the way to more human-centred patterns of development throughout the globe. The final chapters discuss the limited role played by markets in the development and diffusion of these appropriate technologies, and consider both the nature of suitable governmental policies and assess the likelihood of their emergence.

Over the last years, "Creating Shared Value" has become a much discussed concept in business practice as well as in management theory and especially in the context of corporate social responsibility. This book offers a contribution to the current academic discussions on the well-received article of Michael Porter and Marc Kramer in Harvard Business Review in 2011. In the light of the increasing references to the shared value concept, it develops a critical discussion on its fundamentals and its implications for the relationship between economy and society. By that, the book seeks to shed light on the understanding of the role and the nature of the firm in a globalized economy. The result is a collection of interdisciplinary academic reviews which offer interdisciplinary reflections on "Creating Shared Value" to illuminate theoretical, conceptual and practical challenges of the topic. Within the fields of Business Ethics, Theory of the Firm, Management and Philosophy, researcher, students and practitioners will be given a deeper insight on how to approach to the concept in a conceptional and philosophical way.

But, as the author explains, things were not that simple: the numbers of reds declined drastically in Britain between 1900 and 1925, which was well before grey squirrels became established. In fact, contrary to conventional wisdom, if greys and reds inhabit the same wood, they will evenshare the same dreys.Includes:Evolution; Some members of the squirrel clan; Squirrels in Britain; The squirrel's body; From the inside; How long do squirrels live...and what kills them?; Squirrel parasites; Where do squirrels live?; Home sweet home; Building a nest; How manynests?; Nest sharing; The more adventurous home-builder; Mating; Raising a family; Caring for orphaned baby squirrels; Looking after sick and injured squirrels; Squirrel chow; How do squirrels find their food?; The bits they leave; Why do squirrels strip bark?; Squirrels in the garden; How to attract squirrels to your garden; Feeding squirrels; The three-dimensional world of squirrels; Gadding about; Squirrel social life; Do reds and greys mix?; Squirrel talk; How many squirrels are there?; Handling squirrels; Methods of marking squirrels; Red squirrel conservation; Re-introductions; Squirrels as pests; Ways of killing squirrels; Squirrel tales; Squirrel studies; Squirrels and the law; Further information; Useful addresses.
