The Green Light ('Le Feu Vert') offers an original and profound exploration of the roots of environmental philosophy and the Anthropocene. Bernard Charbonneau situates the wellspring of the ecological movement in the dialectics of Nature and Freedom, and their needful but uneasy joining against the totalizing system of technological society that threatens them both. Using this paradoxical tension as a yardstick, he probes the ways in which concepts of Nature have developed as industrialization became second nature and jeopardized the original, taken for granted until its advent. This allows Charbonneau to explain how movements and policies claiming to deal with this issue have gone wrong. A spirited critique of how the environmental movement has taken shape in relation to philosophy, politics, theology and contemporary culture, this book written in 1980 is representative of an oft-overlooked strand of French environmentalist thought, as a look back on its first decade in the public eye by a man who had originated political ecology half a century earlier. Charbonneau can be said to have prepared the way for many current concerns within environmental thought: the tension between liberalism and ecologism in green political theory; the wider question of the compatibility of ecological imperatives with supposedly foundational freedoms under capitalism; the discussions over how to balance existing democratic structures with environmental goals; the tensions between radical and reformist strategies within green movements; the controversy over the core values of ecological politics in a world transformed by climate change and peak everything; and the proper attitude of environmental movements to institutional science. This ground-breaking work should be front and centre of the debates that he anticipated, while giving a timely perspective on the interconnected questions of nature and human freedom. This first English translation of a work by Bernard Charbonneau provides not only a vivid account of environmental philosophy, but an introduction to this important author's thought.

The literature of the sea possesses an especially evocative and refreshing romanticism. This romanticism is to be found in full measure in Leonid Sobolev's The Green Light, a tale of heroic deeds at sea by men defending their country. It is a novel of the courage and comradeship of men at sea, and of that "spirit of the sea" to which Leonid Sobolev has devoted many of his books.The life and writings of Leonid Sobolev are inseparably linked with life in the Soviet Navy, where he served for some twenty years.Born in Irkutsk in 1898, Sobolev was educated at the Naval College at St. Petersburg, which he graduated in 1918. For many years he served as an officer on warships of the Baltic Fleet. His first works -- short stories, poems, and humorous sketches, were published when he was 28, and his first novel appeared in 1933.In The Green Light, first published in Russian in 1954, the author, still faithful to his favorite theme of the lives of Soviet sailors, describes the emotional development of his hero.

Die schlimmste Dürre seit Jahrzehnten lastet wie heißes Blei auf dem ländlichen Städtchen Kiewarra mitten im Nirgendwo. Das Vieh der Farmer stirbt, die Menschen fürchten um ihre Existenz. Als Luke Hadler, seine Frau und ihr Sohn Billy erschossen aufgefunden werden, glauben alle, dass der Farmer durchgedreht ist und erweiterten Suizid begangen hat. Aber Sergeant Raco hat seine Zweifel. Aaron Falk kehrt nach zwanzig Jahren zum ersten Mal nach Kiewarra zurück - zur Beerdigung seines Jugendfreundes Luke. Bald brechen alte Wunden wieder auf; das Misstrauen wirft seine langen Schatten auf die Kleinstadt. Und in der Hitze steigt der Druck immer mehr ... Ein beklemmender Thriller um Heimat, Loyalität und Vergebung. «The Dry katapultiert Jane Harper sofort in die Elite der Thrillerautoren. Phantastische Charaktere, ein einzigartiges und unglaublich atmosphärisches Setting, ein atemberaubender Plot. Dieses Buch hat einfach alles.» (John Lescroart) «Eines der beeindruckendsten Debüts, die ich je gelesen habe. Ich habe die glühende Hitze Australiens am eigenen Leib gespürt. Jedes einzelne Wort sitzt perfekt. Die Geschichte baut sich wie eine riesige Welle auf, bis sie schließlich auf die Erde kracht und alles auslöscht, was man vorher über diese fesselnde Geschichte gedacht hat. Lesen!» (David Baldacci, Bestsellerautor von «Der Auftrag», «Die Kampagne», «Am Limit»)
