    Monbiot argues that we urgently need a positive vision that can re-engage people in politics, and outlines ideas that show the way to a better social & environmental future.

    Mainstream politics is stuck, torn between the redundant doctrines of Keynesianism and neoliberalism. Neither have much to offer a world facing environmental collapse, civic breakdown and a gathering crisis of permanent unemployment. This dismal, managerial politics fails to articulate a vision of a better world, driving people towards the anti-politics offered by Donald Trump and others. What is urgently needed is a positive, propositional vision that can re-engage people in politics.
    In Out of the Wreckage, Monbiot seeks out the best new ideas and streamlines them into a coherent, inspiring story that describes the present and shows the way to a better future. He explains how communities can be rebuilt, how economies can be recharged without destroying the living planet and how politics can once more inspire and thrill. By developing the new narrative we seek, this book helps to provide political movements with the focus and direction required to change the world.
