Interesting deconstruction of environmental pacifism, more thought experiment than manifesto.

its just a polemic, and a rather mediocre one at that

malm has nothing original to say here. he merely brings together some good quotes and arguments of others, but doesnt even bring them together to any interesting or novel conclusion

the last two chapters r pretty good, but still only for their reference to more elaborate works (by others, or by the same author)

the main thrust of malm's polemic here is just that anti-cartesian post-human social theory is useless for analyzing political strategy. this could have been a much shorter and more succinct book, with much less fluffy mediocre and embarrassing philosophy if malm had just distilled that point

but to b fair, it is still an important point. malm contrasts such postmodern non-dualism w more analytically fruitful approaches like merchants "autonomy of nature" (drawing on italian marxism), bellamy-fosters work on the metabolic rift, and his own work on the history of the fossil fuel economy to demonstrate the relative weakness/hollowness/pointlessness of such latourian analysis for politics
