About the Author

Adrian Parr is chair and director of the Charles Phelps Taft Research Center at the University of Cincinnati and UNESCO Co-Chair of Water Access and Sustainability. Her books include Hijacking Sustainability (2009) and The Wrath of Capital: Neoliberalism and Climate Change Politics (Columbia, 2013). She is also the producer and codirector (with Sean Hughes) of the award-winning documentary The Intimate Realities of Water (2016).


Birth of a New Earth is one of those rare and brilliant books that critiques the ongoing destruction of the environment in a writing style that is lyrical, compassionate, and as accessible as it is informative. Parr masterfully weaves together a language of critique and possibility and in doing so makes a convincing case for environmental and economic justice on a global scale and offers a powerful argument for rethinking the meaning and practice of politics. -- Henry Giroux, author of America at War with Itself This is a prescient book, one that not only provides a rigorous and critical analysis of emergent environmentalisms but also charts how imaginations of a "new earth" can be forged at the limits of liberal democracy. In this sense, the book is as much about the political as it is about the environmental. It is a must-read for our times. -- Ananya Roy, author of Poverty Capital: Microfinance and the Making of Development
