New Society Publishers has published Mobilizing the Green Imagination: An Exuberant Manifesto by Anthony Weston, an Elon University professor of philosophy and environmental studies.

It is Weston's 12th book and has developed directly out of his Environmental Visions and Millennial Imagination courses at Elon. Accompanying the book is a website created by Molly Schriber '11.

From the publisher: "Leapfrogging today’s desperate attempts to 'green' the status quo, Mobilizing the Green Imagination invites us to radically remake environmentalism from the inside out. The perfect antidote to pessimistic 'gloom and doom' scenarios, this book opens up ways to transform our cities, our stuff, our experience, and even our sense of our place in the cosmos, in inventive new directions."

Reviewers speak of Weston as a "philosophical provocateur" and describe the book as "a series of postcards from beyond the leading edge of today's green thinking [that] are bold, audacious, extravagantly hopeful and profoundly inspiring."
