Anhand ausgewählter literarischer Werke führt er uns von der Auflösung der Commens in der frühen Neuzeit zum finanzialisierten Kapitalismus der Gegenwart. Dabei zeigt Rendueles sich als begeisterter Reiseführer, der das Nähkästchen parat hat.

Eine Erklärung für das Auseinanderdriften zwischen Wortführern und Basis könnte immerhin darin liegen, dass es tatsächlich einen erhöhten Bedarf an neuen Antworten gibt – der an der Basis auch schon zu einer Art Aufbruch geführt hat, wie er in anderen Ländern zu beobachten ist. Nur dass dies in Deutschland nur sehr bedingt Ausdruck findet in den öffentlichen Debatten, in denen nach wie vor Institutionen und Vertreter des Fachs dominieren, die das Denken in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten des angebotsorientierten Paradigmas geprägt haben – ob im Sachverständigenrat, den Instituten oder der Bundesbank. Was wiederum erklären würde, warum trotz zunehmender Offenheit und Vielfalt der Eindruck im In- und Ausland fortbesteht, die deutsche Ökonomie sei anders als alle anderen auf der Welt.

As the world's energy system faces a period of unprecedented change, a global struggle over who controls the sector--and for what purposes--is intensifying. The question of "green capitalism" is now unavoidable, for capitalist planners and anti-capitalist struggles alike.
Environmental catastrophe looms large over politics: from the young person’s climate march to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, increasing amounts of political space are devoted to the issue. Central to this debate is the question of whether economic growth inevitably leads to environmental issues such as depleted finite resources and increased waste, disruption of natural cycles and ecosystems, and of course climate change. Growth is the focal point of the de-growth and zero-growth movements who charge that despite efficiency gains, increased GDP always results in increased use of energy and emissions. On the other side of the debate, advocates of continued growth (largely mainstream economists) believe that technological progress and policies can ‘decouple’ growth from emissions.
The book is a collection of 51 texts by different scholars and activists, who each adds a dimension/perspective to the topics of degrowth and societal transformation. A societal transformation towards a degrowth society is dependent on a lot of ideas coming together and creating change from various starting points within a society. Therefore, the authors are quite diverse and their contributions vary from being philosophical, natural science based, economic, sociological and so forth. Some are specfiically focused on a concept and others are a more broad critique of e.g., capitalism or growth.

"Energy issues have always been important in international relations, but in recent years may have become even more important than in the past due to the widespread awareness of existing limits to energy sources and negative climate impacts. The course discusses global trends in energy consumption and production, various available scenarios for potential developments in the coming decades, the availability of oil reserves and the evolution of the oil industry. It then discusses natural gas and highlights the differences between oil and gas. It will also discuss renewable energy sources, nuclear energy and EU energy policy. The course aims at providing students whose main interest is in international relations a background on energy resources, technology and economic realities to allow them to correctly interpret the political impact of current developments. It also aims at providing students, who already have a technical background in energy science or engineering, with the broad global view of energy issues that will allow them to better understand the social, economic and political impact of their technical knowledge."
