Resurgence, Vol 1 No 1 - May/Jun 1966
Perpetual Access Available
Resurgence & Ecologist magazine has been at the forefront of environmental reportage for over half a century. A multi-disciplinary resource, Resurgence & Ecologist explores the most pressing issues of the time through the lens of politics, economics and philosophy as well as social justice, ecology, sociology, sustainability and the arts. Providing diverse, inclusive and global views, its 50+ year archive offers both a retrospective and contemporary analysis of current affairs.
Remaining true to its roots as one of first and leading exponents of systems theory, Resurgence & Ecologist seeks to point out the links between issues as diverse as the climate crisis, war, pharmaceuticals, corporate fraud, globalisation, nuclear power, intensive farming, pollution and the power of mass media. Ahead of its time, this pioneering publication played a leading role in diagnosing the environmental crises that have become all too apparent today.
This magazine unites two long-standing, thought-leading publications - the Resurgence magazine, which was born in 1966 out of the peace movement, and The Ecologist, which was first published in 1970 as an academic journal. The Ecologist contributed to the formation of the Green Party and Friends of the Earth, spearheading social, scientific and political ecology while Resurgence pioneered cultural and artistic ecology. Having merged in 2012, these magazines are now united as one strong voice for the once disparate environmental and social justice movements. A subscription gives you access to the complete archive of each of these ground-breaking publications.
Resurgence & Ecologist brings together a broad range of acclaimed writers such as
Vandana Shiva, Noam Chomsky, Bill Mckibben, Mya-Rose Craig, E.F. Schumacher, Caroline Lucas, James Lovelock, Louisa Adjoa Parker, Robert McFarlane, George Monbiot and Winona Laduke
