Derrick Jensen is the most potent voice of the growing deep ecology movement.
Winner of numerous awards and honors including the Eric Hoffer Book Award and Press Action's Person of the Year, he is the author of some fifteen books, including Endgame, A Language Older Than Words, The Culture of Make Believe, Walking on Water: Reading, Writing, and Revolution, and the new Derrick Jensen Reader: Writings on Environmental Revolution.
Derrick Jensen is a force for the common good. His books are mandatory reading in the study of culture and change. He is a contemporary philosopher with his feet firmly on the ground". - Terry Tempest Williams
Jensen raises vital questions that must be asked, and moreover, that must be answered. In this mad venture, we are all complicit, if only in our silence. Jensen shatters this silence." - Mumia Abu-Jamal
If any voice can help us break free of this culture of denial, this is it. Stunningly original, grippingly personal, this book will shock you to your core while at the same time quickening your deepest yearnings for reconnection with the Earth and all its creatures, Jensen has achieved the impossible: a book that is simultaneously horrifying and uplifting, terrifying and beautiful. I could not put it down. Passages will stay with me forever." - Frances Moore Lappe
Hosted by Claire Cummings. Claire Cummings is an author, journalist, lawyer, and lifelong social activist.
