A work of breathtaking erudition.
Susan Hawthorne has written an inspiring book, drawing on feminist and Indigenous knowledge to critique global capitalist practice and create a vision of a regenerative world sustaining the environment and its people.
— Prue Hyman, author Women and Economics
Wild Politics demonstrates that there are richly feminist ways of philosophising ... A powerful feminist sensibility ... informs every line in the book...
— Allan Patience, Australian Book Review
Offering an exciting ride into how the world could be, this book is the one we have been waiting for. Feminists have long been saying we could do life differently, here is the local and global exploration of what needs to change, what must go and how together we can make a new reality. A visionary book with a focus on local and global politics and social movements, Wild Politics presents a powerful critique of global western culture. Susan Hawthorne unpicks the structures of power and knowledge, law and international trade rules, as well as probing issues that intimately affect our daily lives. Wild Politics concludes with a compelling vision for a world inspired by biodiversity.
