Peter Reason's review of 'Defiant Earth' (Clive Hamilton)

Peter provides a comprehensive and insightful review of Clive's book. He says:

"... I was pleased to have the opportunity to hear Clive Hamilton speak at the University of Bristol in the spring of 2017. Hamilton, an Australian ‘public intellectual’, Professor of Public Ethics at Charles Stuart University in Canberra, has been central to the debate about the nature, meaning and implications of the Anthropocene, writing a series of books that have both stimulated and infuriated readers. He describes this latest book as ‘groping toward understanding what it means… to have arrived at this point in history’."

Look here on 'Governing in the Anthropocene' for other sources and material relevant to this discussion.
