Summary note
"Gayil Talshir examines the ideological evolution of green parties in Britain and Germany and traces the formation and transformations of a new type of ideology - the modular ideology. In the 1980s, the 'extraparliamentary opposition'. New Left and ecology movements developed a district social vision that paved the political road for the transformation of democracy. Talshir explores this journey from the politics of nature to changing the nature of politics."--Jacket.
