Description

The Politics of Permaculture is one of the first books to unpack the theory and practice of this social movement that looks to challenge the status quo. Drawing upon the rich seam of publications and online communities from the movement as well as extensive interviews with permaculture practitioners and organisations from around the world, Leahy explains the ways permaculture is understood and practiced in different contexts.

In the face of extreme environmental degradation and catastrophic climate change, we urgently need a new way of living.

‘Some declare that permaculture is the biggest and fastest moving people’s movement in the world. Terry Leahy gives us what is possibly the first permaculture book to examine thoroughly permaculture from a sociological point of view and its potential to undermine the systems driving Earth to degradation and immoral social inequity’

– Rosemary Morrow, founder of the Blue Mountains Permaculture Institute and author of ‘Permaculture Teaching Matters’
