New title: for a Politics of Love

Love-Notes-a Politics-of-Love-Philip-McKibbin

I wanted to introduce you to a new title, Love Notes: for a Politics of Love. Compiled by Philip McKibbin, the book contains a series of essays exploring the role of love in politics, that Philip has authored or co-authored over the last few years. Three were published via Impolitikal, and I’m grateful for their inclusion.

A Politics of Love is an approach to democracy that Philip and his collaborator Max Harris have been sketching out and testing for a while now. It takes the premise that prioritising care, concern and commitment does not weaken political and social systems, but can rather guide leaders to form more effective policies that benefit all citizens, rather than an elite few.
