Book Review: The Politics of Actually Existing Unsustainability


the-politics-of-actually-existing-unsustainabilityBarry, J. (2012). The Politics of Actually Existing Unsustainability: Human Flourishing in a Climate-Changed, Carbon-Constrained World. Oxford, England: Oxford University Press.

Read the review by Ted Benton of the University of Essex, forthcoming in Organization & Environment and now available in the journal’s OnlineFirst section.

This, John Barry’s latest book-length contribution to green political debate, offers original and engaging thought that draws not only on the latest scholarship but also on Barry’s own direct involvement as a Green party activist and office-holder in Northern Ireland. The main thrust of Barry’s argument is for a oaeversion of what he calls “Green Republicanism” that might serve as a policy orientation to take us away from a currently unsustainable and unjust form of social and economic life while defending the key socio-political values of liberty and democracy.
