    Martin Empson is based in Manchester, in the UK and is a long standing socialist and environmental activist.Martin s first book, Land and Labour Marxism, Ecology and Human History was published by Bookmarks Publications in early 2014 Martin draws on a Marxist understanding of history to grapple with the contradictory potential of our relationship with our environment In so doing he shows that human action is key, both to the destruction of nature and to the possibility of a sustainable solution to the ecological crises of the 21st century.Ian Angus, editor of the Climate and Capitalism website, said about the book that it puts today s global environmental crisis into historical context, showing how humanity has used and abused the rest of nature for thousands of years, and how in a few hundred years capitalism has brought us to the brink of disaster It is essential reading for everyone who wants to know how we got into this mess and how we can get out of it Simon Butler, co author of the book, Too Many People Population, Immigration and the Environmental Crisis wrote This superb book examines humanity s dynamic relationships with nature from the dawn of civilisation to modern times with a view to better understanding the social roots of today s environmental crises Engaging, comprehensive and very well written, it s an important contribution to the field of Marxist ecology Simon Butler, co author Too Many People Writing in Socialist Review, January 2014, Camila Royle said that Marxist geographer Neil Smith once argued that, in starting to develop a historical materialist approach to nature, Marx had given us the corners and most of the straight edges of a jigsaw puzzle The job of later generations has been to lay out these pieces and fill in the rest of the picture This book is an important contribution to that tradition Martin is also the author two popular pamphlets, Marxism and Ecology Capitalism, Socialism and the Future of the Planet and Climate Change Why Nuclear Power is not the Answer.

    Excellent A wonderful example of the Marxian method of historical materialism Besides the environmental stuff, which was not new to me, I did learn a great deal about the historical development of agriculture, and just agriculture in general The last chapter was weak and unnecessary.
