endgame: Volume 1 - The Problem of Civilization
Accepting the increasingly widespread belief that industrialized culture inevitably erodes the natural world, Endgame
sets out to explore how this relationship impels us towards a
revolutionary and as-yet undiscovered shift in strategy. Building on a
series of simple but increasingly provocative premises (for example "The
needs of the natural world are more important than the needs of any
economic system" and "Love does not imply pacifism."), Jensen leaves us
hoping for what may be inevitable: a return to agrarian communal life
via the disintegration of civilization itself. A brilliant weaving
together of piercing analysis and elegant prose, Endgame leads us to see that we can re-imagine our world.
"Derrick Jensen is a rare and original voice of sanity in a chaotic world. He has wisdom and wit, grace and style, and is a wonderful guide to a good life beautifully lived."
