Against Ecological Sovereignty is a passionate safeguard of radical ecology that speaks on to present debates about the nature, and risks, of sovereign energy. attractive the paintings of Bataille, Arendt, Levinas, Nancy, and Agamben, between others, Mick Smith reconnects the political critique of sovereign strength with ecological concerns, arguing that moral and political obligations for the results of our activities don't finish with these outlined as human.

Against Ecological Sovereignty is the 1st publication to show Agamben’s research of sovereignty and biopolitics towards an research of ecological matters. In doing so it exposes limits to that inspiration, protecting that the more and more frequent biopolitical administration of human populations has an unrecognized ecological analogue—reducing nature to a “resource” for human initiatives. Smith contends radical ecological politics needs to face up to either the depoliticizing workout of sovereign energy and the pervasive unfold of biopolitics with a purpose to exhibit new percentages for growing fit human and nonhuman communities.

Presenting a stinging critique of human claims to sovereignty over the flora and fauna, Smith proposes an alternate approach to conceive of posthumanist ecological communities—one that acknowledges the utter singularity of the beings in them.
