  • The Ultimate Guide to Green Parenting by Zion Lights

    Although many families aspire to be green, there is no comprehensive lifestyle guide available for them when they become parents - until now. This is the first book to provide information for living a truly green lifestyle in the UK that is based on sound science. 'When The Ultimate Guide to Green Parenting landed on our desks we thought we knew what we were in for - except we didn't. And that's because journalist and mum of two Zion Lights has turned the cliched hippy dippy image of green mama mantras on its head and instead rammed her brilliant book with heaps of common sense and evidence-based facts...If you're looking for reassurance that you are doing the right thing, it's all here.' - Gurgle Magazine

  • SOS Alternatives to Capitalism by Richard Swift

    Combining the practical with the visionary, Richard Swift shows that finding alternatives to capitalism is no longer an academic issue for the left – it is an urgent planetary necessity.

    'Richard Swift's S.O.S. Alternatives to Capitalism makes a major contribution to changing the parameters of political debate. It helps us move beyond the pseudo-alternatives of the political mainstream and begin to work for the kind of change we can believe in without being delusional.'
    John P Clark, Professor of Philosophy; Loyola.
