Wild Capitalism: Environmental Activism and Postsocialist Political Ecology in Hungary
"Introduction" (pre-publication version); for published version with complete bibliographic references, please see Harper, Krista (2006) Wild Capitalism: Environmental Activism and Postsocialist Political Ecology in Hungary, East European Monographs/Columbia University Press.
"Wild Capitalism" examines environmental issues in the "New Europe" of the twenty-first century. Specifically, it looks at how the meanings of "civil society" and "environment" have changed as environmentalists encounter the political and ecological realities of life after state socialism. Although environmentalism is a global social movement, environmental politics is a grassroots process in which activists creatively translate environmental issues into cultural idioms and political processes.
