Against Ecological Sovereignty is a passionate security of radical ecology that speaks on to present debates in regards to the nature, and hazards, of sovereign strength. enticing the paintings of Bataille, Arendt, Levinas, Nancy, and Agamben, between others, Mick Smith reconnects the political critique of sovereign energy with ecological concerns, arguing that moral and political duties for the implications 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 issues. In doing so it exposes limits to that suggestion, preserving that the more and more common biopolitical administration of human populations has an unrecognized ecological analogue—reducing nature to a “resource” for human tasks. Smith contends radical ecological politics needs to face up to either the depoliticizing workout of sovereign energy and the pervasive unfold of biopolitics as a way to exhibit new probabilities for developing fit human and nonhuman communities.

Presenting a stinging critique of human claims to sovereignty over the wildlife, Smith proposes another solution to conceive of posthumanist ecological communities—one that acknowledges the utter singularity of the beings in them.
