Asia Pacific Journal of Public Administration
'A much welcomed contribution to the most significant debate of our time … Given the ‘do or die’ imperative radically to rewire our systems of production and consumption as quickly and justly as possible, Green Growth: Ideology, Political Economy, and the Alternatives is crucial reading for all.'
Marx and Philosophy Review of Books
'Green Growth offers us much insight and should be considered a significant contribution to the fields of sustainable development, political ecology and ecological economics.'
'Contains thoughtful analyses. The book's central message is that capitalism probably can't green itself. Moreover, green growth is the latest ideological reshaping of the hegemony of capital. Recommended.'
'The volume is required reading for anyone who wants to understand the most pressing concern of our time.'
