Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

Leigh Phillips is a science writer and European Union affairs journalist. Writing for Nature, the New Scientist, the Guardian, the Daily Telegraph, the New Statesman, Jacobin, and Scientific American, amongst other outlets, he has visited appallingly ill-equipped Siberian tuberculosis hospices, interviewed Mexican nanotechnology researchers bombed by eco-terrorists, tricked into eating whale meat by Norwegian diplomats in the high Arctic, followed Hungarian fascists on a torch-lit march threatening a gypsy village, and been tear-gassed and punched in the face by Italian Carabinieri. A long-time Brussels-based reporter, he also spent a decade exposing corporate capture of EU law-making and its accompanying hollowing out of democracy.

His second book, 'The People's Republic of Walmart', co-authored with Polish-Canadian economist Michal Rozworski, will be published in 2016 by Verso.
