Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

First published in 1999, Against Civilization quickly became known as the primer of primitivism, or "green anarchy," the most radical form of anarchism to develop in the past decade. An anthology of critical commentary on what editor John Zerzan terms "the pathology of civilization," the book offers compelling insight from a diverse group of writers and thinkers including Rousseau, Fourier, William Morris, Schiller, Bahro, Kirkpatrick Sale, and Paul Shepard. The 51 selections examine how progress and technology have led to emptiness and alienation, why every culture longs for a lost Golden Age, and question whether civilization can be saved from itself. Providing profound historical insight into the roots of cultural discontent, the book also paints a vision of a world unfettered by oppression and exploitation. This edition features 60 pages of new material.
