Hello world!

Filed under: Latest Reading List — paulfr0st @ 4:25 pm

Hello and welcome to my Green Reading List blog. For more information please click on “About” and “How This Blog Works” on the page header.

The first thing we need to do is suggest some initial categories.

So here are a few to kick off –

Basic Introductory Reading

Green Party Policy

Green History

Green Theory

General Political Theory

British Political History

International Politics and History

Policy Development Background Reading



  1. Hi there
    I think that there is a section needed for Economics, probably more specifically ‘Green Economics’ as there is a lot of work going on in that area at the moment. However, general economic background is also useful.
    Also, I think there should be a section on environmental themes, such as Climate Change research, water resource management etc where relevant to the current political situation.
    I am working on a list of books that I am aware of that fit into these and your already posted topic areas, and will add these later.
    Best of luck with the list

  2. Thanks Sven, I will add your suggestions at the next edit of the list. Probably a general “Economics” section would be best, as this could include current and recent stuff on Green Economics as well as older and more general info. The other section could be entitled “Environmental Issues”, with sub headings for the different themes.

  3. Excellent idea. As we have a fairly extensive section in the Manifesto can I suggest a Green Philosophy section.

    On that note Val Plumwood’s ‘Environmental Culture’ is indispensable.

  4. Paul – great initiative! I’ll contribute soon. In the meantime can you make the text contrast with the grey/charcoal background? This would make reading the entries a whole lot easier.

  5. Seems a bit of a bias toward political theory rather than what we actually /do/. On that note I support Sven’s call for an Economics section and sections on other issues, i.e. all the collective of knowledge that informs our policies.

  6. Dear Bob, Douglas and Candy. Thanks for your comments. I plan to do an edit at the weekend, which may involve looking at a new template, as the comments are a bit “grey on grey”! Will add some sub-sections under “Environmental Issues” and perhaps a new section “Social Issues”, with sub- headings.
    Thanks to all for suggestions so far, I will start adding books and links at the next edit also. It would be useful for us, if people wish to suggest a book or text that we might be unfamiliar with, if you gave a brief description or link to a fair review!
