Finally, I am very happy to report that a fine little book I have been working on is now out from LeftWord Books (cover above). This is a book that is anchored by Naomi Klein's 2016 Edward Said Lecture on climate change, Othering and the occupation of the Palestinians. It is a fabulous essay, and it opens the book. Following it come a series of meditations by writers from around the world - John Bellamy Foster, Ghassan Hage, Rafia Zakaria, Masturah Alatas, Shalini Singh and susan abulhawa. They hail from Malaysia, Lebanon, India, Palestine, Pakistan, the United States and Australia. The book ends with a clever essay by Amitav Ghosh on the idea of globalisation and climate change. I am so proud of this little, little book.
The book is available from our website here. It is also available from Amazon's Kindle store as an e-book. LeftWord ships worldwide, by the way.
It is worthy of a blush that the actor Emma Thompson gave the book this blurb,
'With the earth and its inhabitants under more pressure than ever before, and with bona fide climate change deniers in the most powerful positions on the planet, reading this book is essential. It informs and inspires the actions that we all need to take to protect ourselves and our homes. Read it, and after you’ve wept, act'.
I hope you'll be able to read the book.
