Ian Angus: “We must have a concrete materialist understanding of how our world works and is changing. Without that, our political views would be floating in mid-air, with no concrete foundation.”

Ian’s book, Facing the Anthropocene: Fossil Capitalism and the Crisis of the Earth System, is available now through  booksellers in Canada, the United States and Australia, and will be available in Europe soon.
