For a long time feminsts have been saying we could do life differently, here is a local and global exploration of what needs to change, what must go, and how together we can make a new reality. With a focus on local and global politics as well as social movements of the twenty-first century, 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 probing into issues that intimately affect us in our daily lives. Wild Politics concludes with a compelling vision for a world inspires by biodiversity. Susan Hawthorne is a feminist activist, writer and performer.
