Reviews

"This book goes beyond the usual poetic eulogies for a dying planet to transform the anarchist slogan 'direct action speaks louder than words' into a concrete blueprint for a resistance movement now! If Deep Green Resistance does not inspire its reader to political action, then nothing will." --Ann Handsen, author of Direct Action: Memoirs of an Urban Guerilla

"With clear, sober analysis, and facts that include the reality of runaway global climate change and that of 200 species being made extinct every day, the severity and urgency of our collective crisis is laid bare. Deep Green Resistance then asks, 'Do we want to feel better or do we want to be effective?'" --Dahr Jamail, author of The End of Ice

"Deep Green Resistance posits, I fear correctly, that resistance will have to become more militant and perhaps even resort to physical acts of confrontation with the corporate leviathan." --Chris Hedges, author of War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning
