Abstract

In Fossil Capital: The Rise of Steam Power and the Roots of Global Warming, Andreas Malm traces our current environmental predicament to the rise of the steam age in Britain driven by capitalist concerns. This is a superbly written, measured and rigorous book, finds John Tomaney, which should be read by anyone interested in the history of fossil capital.
