The January/February issue of Resurgence & Ecologist considers the repercussions of the Scottish referendum. In an extended feature, our authors examine the wider debate on localism and look at renewed calls to shift the balance of political power.

Also, in this issue, Adam Weymouth reports from Alaska on indigenous people's rights; the American critic David W. Orr writes on the dangers of debasing our language; social commentator Jeremy Seabrook exposes the myths of the market; and Rob Burbea explores Buddhist attitudes to nature.

To mark the UN International Year of Soils in 2015, Vandana Shiva explains why we need to reconnect with the earth and Craig Sams offers a holistic approach to soil science.

We hope that these articles, together with our regular features on art, poetry and books, will provide you with stimulating reading well beyond the holiday season.
