Beyond Bookchin: preface for a future social ecology
This book is the most comprehensive discussion to date of Murray Bookchins social ecology. But David Watson goes far beyond social ecology to explore new paths of thinking about radical politics. His visionary ecology challenges the mystique of progress and proposes a more holistic notion of reason both primal and modern, skeptical and mythopoetic.
