Description - Endgame Vol.1: The Problem of Civilization by Derrick Jensen
This is Derrick Jensen's most ambitious, important and monumental book to date. The companion piece to Derrick Jensen's immensely popular and highly acclaimed works "A Language Older than Words" (Souvenir Press, 2002) and "The Culture of Make Believe" (Context Books, 2000), "Endgame" builds 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 "The mass of civilized people will never be on our side". Jensen invites readers to imagine a return to agrarian communal life via the disintegration of civilization itself.
