Hi Tony - don't worry, like all these internet groups its up to you to decide how much you want to get involved. I do enjoy your reviews of the books you read - envious that I no longer have the time to read books much these days! I'm from the Marxist-Lentilist wing of the green movement, a 'watermelon green' - green on the outside, red in the middle! I think I was telling you I';m working on a book, provisionally entitled 'Green Politics, Vulnerability and Sustainability: Resistance, Resilience and Republicanism' - would you have the time (or interest) in reading and commenting on draft chapters? Best, John

John, I join you here with trepidation. Having become hooked into Goodreads, I don't want to devote too much time to another such group. I shall therefore approach with caution. I'm not even very Green. more old fashioned Red. Mind you, once society is sorted out, the planet should take care of itself - - -
Tony
