Description - The Point Is To Change It by Noel Castree

Commissioned to celebrate the 40th year of Antipode: A Radical
Journal of Geography, this book evaluates the role of the
critical social scientist and how the point of their work is not
simply to interpret the world but to change it

Brings together leading critical social scientists to consider
the major challenges of our time and what is to be done about
them

Applies diagnostic and normative reasoning to momentous issues
including the global economic crisis, transnational environmental
problems, record levels of malnourishment, never ending wars, and
proliferating natural disasters

Theoretically diverse - a range of perspectives are put to work
ranging from Marxism and feminism to anarchism

The chapters comprise advanced but accessible analyses of the
present and future world order
