Out of stock, Available to order
A scorched eucalyptus leaf twirls out of a clear sky, a premonition that begins a journey into a world on the edge.
In Full Circle, Scott Ludlam draws on his unique experience as senator and activist. Travelling the world, he discovers an emerging post-capitalist economics, and investigates everything from systems theory to community activism. Above all, he looks for what works- the falling grain of sand that sets off the avalanche of environmental and democratic change.
This is a book about hidden connections and fresh possibilities, and what happens when we invite natural systems back into the urban world. Bringing together a wealth of new ideas, Full Circle outlines a new ecological politics. It is a visionary book for our wild times.
Scott Ludlam was a senator from 2008 to 2017 and served as deputy leader of the Australian Greens. He has also worked as a filmmaker, artist and graphic designer. This is his first book, the fruit of a life of activism, study and travel.
