Abstract

In The Politics of Actually Existing Unsustainability, John Barry locates the causes of unsustainability in dominant capitalist modes of production, debt-based consumerism, and the imperative for orthodox economic growth. Barry attempts to offer a green political economic alternative which could replace economic growth with economic security, and outlines and develops an account of ‘green republicanism’. Reviewed by Roger McCormick.
