"In an age of wilting ambition and self-imposed frugality, Leigh Phillips has written an important rallying cry for both the desirability and possibility of a radically better future. Against the austerity of neoliberalism and the austere life of the 'small is beautiful' crowd, Phillips reasserts our capacity to go beyond parochial constraints. This is a work that deserves to be read widely." - Nick Srnicek, co-author of Inventing the Future and the Accelerationist Manifesto
"As erudite as it is justifiably polemical. Leigh Phillips takes no prisoners. The book should be titled "Manifesto for the Green Jacobins", and read in the spirit of The Holy Family, Or a Critique of Critical Criticism
about the Bauers. A refreshing antidote to technological pessimism. Cures intellectual drowsiness." - Calestous Juma, Director of the Science, Technology and Globalization Project at the Havard Kennedy School's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs
