Amanda Machin, Visiting Fellow at CSD, has recently published Negotiating Climate Change: Radical Democracy and the Illusion of Consensus (Zed Books).

Negotiating Climate Change coverClimate change is the greatest challenge of the age, and yet fierce disagreement still exists over the best way to tackle the problem or, indeed, whether it should be tackled at all. In this original book, Amanda Machin draws on radical democratic theory to show that such disagreement does not have to hinder collective action; rather, democratic differences are necessary if we are to have any hope of acting against climate change.

The book has already garnered positive reviews and is an important read for researchers, students, policy makers and anyone concerned about the current (lack of) politics of climate change. For more details visit http://www.zedbooks.co.uk/paperback/negotiating-climate-change.
