Colin Ward was the historian of unofficial uses of the landscape. The twelve essays in Talking Green cover environmental pollution, urban life, allotments, the uses of nature, land settlement, regionalism, squatting, smallholding, the green personality, the shires of Southern England and escaping city life. The collection concludes by discussing whether conservation is more than nostalgia. Taken together, the essays provide discussion points for anyone interested in taking green politics further than climate change and recycling (important as these are).
