Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In The Culture of Make Believe, Derrick Jensen sets the bar as high as possible, examining the atrocities that characterize so much of our culture — from lynchings in early 20th-century America, modern slavery, and corporate misdeeds to manufacturing disasters, death squads in developing nations, and the destruction of the natural world.

Interweaving political, historical, philosophical, and deeply personal perspectives, Jensen argues that only by understanding past horrors can we hope to prevent future ones. Impeccably researched, The Culture of Make Believe arrives at some shocking and thought-provoking conclusions. As readers of A Language Older than Words can attest, Jensen is a public intellectual of rare abilities.
