Summary:

Ecology Party Manifesto for the 1983 General Election. "Politics for Life" from "the Ecology Party - Britain's Green Party". Inside front cover title "A Manifesto for Peace, Liberation & Survival" together with a quote from EF Schumacher. 35 pages divided into two parts. Pages 2-24 being a general discussion/introduction to green politics and principles and pages 26-34 being detailed policies. A 1 point action plan for life on earth now appears on p26 - many of the points having subsequently been implemented.

Illustrated throughout by cartoons by David Haldane, the concluding one showing a green shoot growing from the cracks between arid areas labelled "Labour, Tory, Aliance" with the caption "Where the Wasteland Ends" - possibly an allusion to Theodore Rozak's book published in 1972.
