"A provocative anthologypresenting the likes of Freud, Friedrich Schiller, William Morris, and the Unabomber, along with bright contemporary thinkersthat raises the question of whether our elaborately structured, technology-driven society creates more problems than it alleviates." -- Jay Walljasper; Utne Reader, March/April 1999
"Twist the popular Earth First! slogan from "Visualize Industrial Collapse" to "Actualize Industrial Collapse" and you have the gist of this new anthology from John Zerzan. To many it has seemed that John has been alone in his attack on the totality of civilization. Now the reader can see a chronology: diversity and passion from hundreds of years of resistance against the nightmare we have inherited today. This book will introduce ecologists to anarchists and anarchists to ecologists; intellectuals to activist perspectives; and vice-versa. I think Chellis Glendinning's description in her Foreword is accurate when she says "Herein the reader will discover the questions that need to be asked and insights that beg to be nurtured if humankind and the natural world as we know it are to thrive in the future. This book is that important." -- Chris Kortright; Feral: A Journal Toward Wildness, Spring 1999 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
