In Western culture, domination and hierarchy are evident in three principal ways: the oppression of people by other people; the oppression of women by men; and the oppression of nature by human beings. Combining perspectives from anarchist, feminist, and ecological movements in addressing these three tyrannies, "Green philosophy" has the potential to constitute the basis of any post-Western worldview that renounces domination and hierarchy, including those that inform the writing and teaching of history. Although books on historiography and historical method are legion, few start from a Green or post-Western perspective. In Green History, Tom Martin follows-up his Greening of the Past with a thought-provoking examination of the basic assumptions underlying Western historical thought from a Green standpoint. Martin argues that Western historiography and historical method are fundamentally flawed and that our entire view of the past needs rethinking. He offers a cogent critique of Western historiography and suggestions on possible directions for Green methodology, narrative, and focus. Provocative and insightful, Green History is a timely work that will engage historians interested in the future of their discipline.
