Product description

Review

Every now and then, an idea emerges that helps the human species to evolve. Wild Law is one such idea and is brilliantly explained in this book. Cormac Cullinan leads us toward a new relationship with Mother Earth just in time. --Maude Barlow, activist, co-founder of the Blue Planet Project and author of Blue Covenant: The Global Water Crisis

Africa, the cradle of humanity, is rich in biodiversity and human cultures. Both are being degraded and destroyed by a world order that has forgotten the role we need to play in the Earth system and the value of communities. This important book shows not only why we need to revise our governance systems completely, but also how to begin doing so in a way that draws inspiration from nature and from our diverse human communities. --Professor Wangari Maathai, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate and founder of the Green Belt Movement

Even in an age that feels itself to be enlightened and humane, and condemns cruelty to animals, and claims to take the environment seriously, the idea of Wild Law still seems, to many, to be bizarre. How can wild creatures, or landscapes, be granted the same kind of respect the same rights in law, as a human being? Yet, as Cormac Cullinan argues so powerfully, the morality of this is clear, and the logic of the case seems impeccable. Indeed we should be asking, can we claim to be fully civilized in the absence of such laws? --Colin Tudge, author of The Secret Life of Trees, Feeding People is Easy and Consider the Birds: How They Live and Why They Matter

Synopsis

We are rapidly destroying our only habitat, Earth. It is becoming clear that many of the treaties, laws and policies concluded in recent years have failed to slow down, let alone halt or reverse, this process. This book attempts to shows that the survival of the community of life on Earth (including humans), requires us to alter fundamentally our understanding of the nature and purpose of law and governance, rather than merely changing laws. In describing what this new "Earth governance" and "Earth jurisprudence" might look like, it also gives practical guidance on how to begin moving towards it - fusing politics, legal theory, quantum physics and ancient wisdom into a fascinating story.
