Catastrophism: The Apocalyptic Politics of Collapse and Rebirth


Manufacturer: Merlin Press

Product Information

"We live in catastrophic times. The world is reeling from the deepest economic crisis since the Great Depression, with the threat of further meltdowns ever-looming. Global warming and myriad dire ecological disasters worse, with little if any action to halt them—their effects rippling across the planet in the shape of almost biblical floods, fires, droughts, and hurricanes. Catastrophism explores the politics of apocalypse, on the left and right, and in the environmental movement. The authors probe the reasons why catastrophic thinking is so prevalent, and challenge the belief that it is only out of the ashes that a better society may be born. They argue that those who care about social justice and the environment should jettison doomsaying, even as it relates to indisputably apocalyptic climate change."

By Sasha Lilley, David McNally, Eddie Yuen, and James Davis, with a foreword by Doug Henwood. Between the Lines, Merlin and PM Press, 2012.
