Scribe has acquired world rights in Jeff Sparrow’s A Secret History of Climate Change.
Scribe’s publisher, Henry Rosenbloom, said, ‘Jeff is one of Australia’s most thoughtful and incisive commentators on politics and current affairs, and his new book promises to be his best yet.
‘It’s a sweeping, compelling anti-capitalist account of what’s led us to various disastrous developments, especially the climate crisis. And it’s an unexpectedly optimistic history, carrying a message of empowerment.’
Scribe acquired the rights from Martin Shaw at Shaw Literary, and will publish the book in the last quarter of 2021.
Jeff is the author of a number of books, including Money Shot: a journey into porn and censorship; No Way But This: in search of Paul Robeson; Trigger Warnings: political correctness and the rise of the right; and Fascists Among Us: online hate and the Christchurch massacre.
