John Bellamy Foster

We are stealing from nature, on the edge of a cliff.

Sociologist John Bellamy Foster surveys the disastrous effects of capitalism's exploitation of labor and expropriation of nature, two linked crises crashing down on the 21st century, and calls for the beginning steps in a long, slow process of ecological revolution on an Earth with not much time left for life itself.

John is author of The Robbery of Nature: Capitalism and the Ecological Rift from Monthly Review.
