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. 

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
In a world of political turbulence, social unrest and environmental challenges Resurgence & Ecologist is an invaluable resource for any institutional library.

Latest Issue:

The courage to change

The theme of this issue is threshold places, and by those we mean those unseen and often unnoticed places where change is already afoot but where 'what was' is not quite ended and 'what will become' has not yet arrived.

This is where the magic happens, but navigating these spaces – and thus change – calls for courage from us all. And more than that, it calls for shared beliefs and deep trust.

Every piece in this issue highlights some version of a threshold looming, being crossed or having been successfully negotiated. In her Slow Read article, Gail Bradbrook explores a liminal place in the world of activism and how Extinction Rebellion, which she co-founded, crossed a major threshold to generate mainstream awareness, and may yet need to cross another.

In his joyful rediscovery of Indian street art, Satish Kumar celebrates how life-affirming it is to cross the threshold that says we must engage with most art indoors and in hushed tones. In our main theme, we share the thoughts of the late Irish poet John O’Donohue on just why thresholds are so important, before we go on to explore two big rites of passage: birth and death.

In many ways, Resurgence & Ecologist is all about presenting humanity (and its relationship to the planet and all we share it with) sometimes showing smallness, and sometimes wonderful generosity, but with above all things our ability to see and hopefully honour what matters, even if and perhaps especially when we cannot capture or hold on to it, because that precarity is what makes life here so precious for us all.
