ENVISION THIS: “If we wish to stop the atrocities, we need merely to step aside from the isolation. There is a whole world waiting for us, ready to welcome us home.”

Derrick Jensen's new book, STRANGELY LIKE WAR-THE GLOBAL ASSAULT ON FORESTS, provides us with powerful proof we must address the corporate assault on life NOW, before it is too late. In an age marked by seemingly unstoppable environmental collapse and the urgent quest for solutions, environmental philosopher Derrick Jensen, the voice of the growing deep ecology movement, reveals for us new seeds of hope.

Derrick walks his talk, convening Earth at Risk: Building a Resistance Movement to Save the Planet, a conference that featured thinkers and activists who are willing to ask the hardest questions about the seriousness of our situation. Together they build an unassailable case that we need to deprive the rich of their ability to steal from the poor, and the powerful of their ability to destroy the planet. They offer their ideas on what can be done to build a real resistance movement–one that can actually match the scale of the problem. A DVD is available at http://www.derrickjensen.org/work/books-dvds-cds/#actionperson.

Hailed as the philosopher poet of the environmental movement, Derrick Jensen is author of twenty-one books and was named one of Utne Reader's "50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World." He has packed university auditoriums, conferences, and bookstores across the nation, stirring them with revolutionary spirit.
