James Lovelock’s Gaia Hypothesis urges you to become an ecologist.
Landscape, Wealth, & Dispossession enables you to take an ecologically informed stand on the crucial issue of our time: the survival of humanity.
Landscape, Wealth, & Dispossession considers the evolution of the British landscape, at home and abroad, in the context of six powerful forces: Humanity, Feudalism, Capitalism, Industrialism, Colonialism, and Individualism. Thus in six parts, Landscape, Wealth and Dispossession, explains that the Landscape is a manifestation of Wealth concentrated into the hands of the few. Consequently, the many, the mass of humanity, suffer Dispossession, not only dispossessed of its land, but also of its access to other resources, and, therefore, dispossessed of its natural dignity.
This evolutionary social process is described by Nick Ashton-Jones in a lively, illustrative way in order to encourage a better understanding of the contemporary landscape, not only by geographers, ecologists and politicians, but also by folk who want to correctly interpret the human landscape of which they are a living part.
