Review of No Other Planet in Environmental Politics

Joe P. L. Davidson (Warwick) has just published a generous and insightful review of No Other Planet in Environmental Politics. Here is an excerpt:

“Thaler’s innovative methodological framework and judiciously analysed examples effectively and powerfully demonstrate the value of thinking speculative fiction, political theory, and climate change together. The study, with this constellation of elements, sets out a research agenda that will no doubt spur other green political theorists to explore the world of speculative fiction. Given the political disruptions associated with the climate crisis, new ways of thinking are required – and the dreams of climate fiction writers, whether weird or wonderful, hopeful or apocalyptic, are an invaluable resource.”
