Green Nation - New book from Irish Greenhouse Press


June sees the release of Volume 2 of the Ecopolitics Series on Irish Greenhouse Press. Green Nation: The Irish Environmental Movement from Carnsore Point to the Rossport 5 examines community responses to issues of percieved environmental risk. Cases examined include the anti-nuclear protests at Carnsore Point, the Mullaghmore heitage dispute, regional anti-incineration campaigns, the 'shell to sea' campaign and the anti-roads protests at Tara and the Glen of the Downs. Author Dr. Liam Leonard presents a series of case studies and event analysis, placing these disputes within the wider context of a longstanding rural sentiment which influences objections to industrial or infrastructural projects. Green Nation is available through Choice Publishing at www.choicepublishing.ie
