May/June 2014

Welcome front cover
Ecological Feminism

Satish Kumar introduces our May/June issue with a celebration of Truth, Goodness and Beauty. The integration of this ancient trilogy into our lives is the foundation of the challenging journey for Resurgence & Ecologist, its writers, poets, artists, readers and supporters.

In an exclusive feature Germaine Greer, author of the inspirational White Beech: The Rainforest Years, argues that conservation and feminism have an enduring historical connection, and that for a feminist to out herself as a conservationist is a logical extension of the feminist worldview.

Our focus on journeys of transformation continues with profiles of Buddhist leader Sulak Sivaraksa, Indian politician Arvind Kejriwal, and political philosopher Roger Scruton.
