Contends that the current extinction rate is nothing short of catastrophic and is the result of capitalism’s global attack on the air, water, plants and creatures that have been regarded traditionally as the inheritance of humanity as a whole. Dawson argues that extinction cannot be understood in isolation from a critique of our economic system. To grasp it fully we need tor transgress the boundaries between science, environmentalism and radical politics. Adapted from publisher description.
