In twenty short books, Penguin brings you the classics of the environmental movement - now in one complete set
Over the past 75 years, a new canon has emerged. As humans have driven the living planet to the brink of collapse, visionary thinkers around the world have raised their voices to defend it. Their words have endured, becoming the classics that define the environmental movement today.
From art, literature, food and gardening, to technology, economics, politics and ethics, each of these short books deepens our sense of our place in nature; each is a seed from which a bold activism can grow. Together, they show the richness of environmental thought, and point the way to a fairer, saner, greener world.
Recommended reading for anyone in your life who want to understand more about the challenges facing society today and really make a difference, from Greta Thunberg to Ibram X. Kendi.
Curated and voted for by booksellers, winners included authors Michelle Obama, Greta Thunberg and Caroline Criado Perez.
Whether it’s a gift for a colleague you’ve barely uttered a word to or for Great Auntie what’s-her-name you only see once a year, there’s nothing quite like the annual public humiliation of a Secret Santa. But fear not – one of these stocking-sized books are guaranteed to get a nod of approval, whoever's name it is you pulled out of a hat.
