The Culture of Make Believe by Derrick Jensen
The Culture of Make Believe

caroline colesworthy, January 7, 2010

the culture of make believe is a primer for those who are critical of contemporary civilization. at once unflinchingly personal and historically elaborate- this book breaks it all down. often volumes this dense are impersonal and hard to get through but this one reads like a trashy novel. i couldn't put it down. it fleshes out some of the densest mysteries of everyday dysfunction at both the societal and interpersonal levels. though not for the faint of heart, i cannot recommend it enough.
