Description

Paul Kingsnorth was once an activist, an ardent environmentalist. But as the environmental movement began to focus on 'sustainability' rather than the defence of wild places for their own sake and as global conditions worsened, he grew disenchanted with the movement that he once embraced. Full of grief and fury as well as passionate evocations of nature and the wild, Kingsnorth's collection of provocative, urgent and fearless essays chart the change in his thinking. Confessions of a Recovering Environmentalist is an ultimately hopeful book which poses hard questions about how we've lived and how we should live.

Author Biography

He is also the author of One No, Many Yeses and Real England, and a poetry collection, Kidland. He is the co-founder of The Dark Mountain Project.
