Product Details

Praise

“This bold and richly detailed study of far-right approaches to climate change is a revelation. Its admirably transnational reading of urgent political priorities could not be more timely.”
—Geoff Eley, author of Nazism as Fascism

“A highly engaging study, full of startling anecdotes and witty reflections. If you want to understand the political obstacles that will face climate action in the coming decades, White Skin, Black Fuel is a must-read.”
—Cara Daggett, author of The Birth of Energy

“A beautifully written, passionate, richly researched warning about fossil fascism—and its mutant offspring, ecofascism. With acute sensitivity, it traces the surprising connections between racist, nationalist ideology and climate denialism. And it persuasively explains why climate disaster only reinforces denialism on the right. An essential insight into an emerging threat.”
—Richard Seymour, author of Corbyn

“This bold and richly detailed study of far-Right approaches to climate change is a revelation. With well-grounded historical depth and challenging theoretical reach, it brings disparate contemporary developments onto a much-needed common canvas. Its admirably transnational reading of urgent political priorities could not be more timely.”
—Geoff Eley, University of Michigan, author of Nazism as Fascism

“In this highly engaging study, full of startling anecdotes and witty reflections, Andreas Malm and the Zetkin Collective take us on a whirlwind tour of ascendant far-right movements and their anti-climate politics in Europe, the US, and Brazil. White Skin, Black Fuel is analytically rich, getting to the heart of fascism’s long-standing entanglement with white supremacy, fossil fuels, machinist fetishism, and capitalist cruelty. If you want to understand the political obstacles that will face climate action in the coming decades, this book is a must-read.”
—Cara Daggett, author of The Birth of Energy

“[Malm is] the hardest-working intellectual on the climate left.”
Wen Stephenson, The Nation

“A firm foundation for antifascist understandings of fascism. If the name of the game is to know our enemy, this is a crucial first step.”
Alex King, Spectre

“Compelling.”
—Paul Mason, New Statesman

“A critically needed analysis for movement thinkers and organisers seeking to understand the resurgence of fascism in the midst of climate breakdown.”
—Basav Sen, Antipode

“[White Skin, Black Fuel] shows how, in the political arena, arguments about economic rationality get woven together with hierarchical structures and the pursuit of domination, portending what it calls fossil fascism.”
—Olufemi O. Taiwo, New Yorker

White Skin, Black Fuel charts many of the risks facing progressive politics in a post-carbon era, but it would be foolish to dismiss such a politics as utopian. It is on utopia that we now depend.”
—James Butler, London Review of Books

“A sustained challenge to [the] complacent historical framing of our present condition … attempts to set out the ways in which gas-guzzling consumerism, fossil fuel addiction, settler colonialism and structures of racial power are historically entwined.”
—Adam Tooze, London Review of Books
