Victor Wallis, "Red-Green Revolution"

Image Victor WallisVictor Wallis, with a Ph.D. in Political Science from Columbia University, is a professor ofLiberal Arts at the Berklee College of Music, Boston, MA, where he has taught since 1996. He has been writing on ecological issues since the early 1990s. His writings have appeared in journals such as Monthly Review and New Political Science, and have been translated into thirteen languages.

His book, Red-Green Revolution (Political Animal Press) is an impassioned and informed confrontation with the planetary emergency brought about by accelerated ecological devastation in the last half-century. Wallis argues that sound ecological policy requires a socialist framework, based on democratic participation and drawing on the historical lessons of earlier efforts.

Wallis presents a relentless critique of the capitalist system that has put the book cover Wallishuman species into a race against time to salvage and restore what it can of the environmental conditions necessary for a healthy existence. He then looks to how we might turn things around, reconsidering the institutions, technologies, and social relationships that will determine our shared future, and discussing how a better framework can evolve through the convergence of popular struggles, as these have emerged under conditions of crisis.
This is an important book, both for its incisive account of how we got into the mess in which we find ourselves, and for its bold vision of how we might still go forward.
