A must read for those who believe that both carbon and socially just transformations are possible if a different political imaginary can be nurtured. - Erik Swyngedouw, Professor of Geography, University of Manchester This is a very important book - not only for researchers, but for politicians and citizens concerned with the prospect of a low carbon future. - Harald Rohracher, Professor, Linkoeping University It is an essential resource for academics, policy makers, public officials, elected representatives, environmentalists and business leaders seeking answers to difficult questions which confront our cities and regions. - Andy Jonas, Professor of Human Geography, Hull University This is a really useful dissection of the complexities of producing a low carbon society. It provides very significant detail on how low carbon varies across Britain, the causes of such variations and policies that might enhance low carbonism within different areas. - John Urry, Distinguished Professor, Lancaster University One of the great merits of this book is that it frames the low carbon debate in geo-political terms and refuses to be seduced by fashionable technological fixes. - Kevin Morgan, Professor of Governance and Development, School of Planning and Geography, Cardiff University
