Green Reading List Blog

How This Blog Works

I have started this blog as a record of progress in constructing a reading list for the Green Party of England and Wales. It is designed as an interactive process where people can contribute their own suggestions and comments – either for books to be included or new categories. You do not have to be a member of the Green Party of England and Wales to contribute, suggestions from other green-minded folk at home and abroad are welcome!

If you wish to make a contribution just log a comment to the latest post. These will be reviewed and the list amended as appropriate. In this way, the latest post will always be the most up-to date version of the reading list. You can suggests books, pamphlets or web-based material, the only criteria that they are relevant to the Green Party and are relatively easily accessed through libraries, bookshops or the internet.

As a minimum I would like title and author(s) for books and pamphlets, and if possible ISBN number, publisher and date of publication.  For web pages, URL.

The idea is to create a reading list which can hopefully achieve a number of objectives and act as a useful tool for the Party. The reading list will be divided into a range of categories to make it more user-friendly. The list will have basic introductory reading material for new members and supporters as well as sections covering more advanced theory and information on specific topics. As such it will potentially help in both general political education of members and supporters as well as giving pointers for activists and those engaged in policy review and creation.

For visitors who are not familiar with the Green Party of England and Wales or its’ international counterparts I will be adding useful links in the sidebar so that you can find out more. Suggestions for other links are also welcome.

If you are interested in coming on board and making a suggestion, welcome!



  1. My book ‘Earth Cell’ was reviewed as an essential read in the Winter 07 issue of ‘Green World’. The book is for children age 10-13 and is about survival in an England ravaged by the effects of global warming.

  2. I like your 100 best green bloggers feature- How about a 100 best local Green Party websites feature too? I think we should do more to support and encourage all those webmasters out there who are busy trying to get our message across to the voters.

  3. ‘The Earth Party’ George Marshall

    ‘Climate change seems to have replaced nuclear holocaust as the Armageddon of choice in literature and film. George Marshall’s novel is more interesting than most – especially to members of the Green Party – as it focuses on the debate as to how to keep society going in the case of such an event and what kind of political credo and structure is needed.’
