Out of the Wreckage : A New Politics for an Age of Crisis Paperback / softback

Description

Today, our lives are dominated by an ideology of extreme competition and individualism.

It misrepresents human nature, destroying hope and common purpose.

But we cannot replace it without a positive vision, one that reengages people in politics and lights a path to a better world.

Urgent and passionate, George Monbiot shows how new findings in psychology, neuroscience and evolutionary biology cast humans in a radically different light: as the supreme altruists and cooperators.

He shows how both democracy and economic life can be radically reorganised from the bottom up, enabling us to take back control and overthrow the forces that have thwarted our ambitions for a better society.

Out of the Wreckage explains just how communities can be rebuilt with the help of a new "politics of belonging".
