Running on Emptiness: The Pathology of Civilisation
Thinker and revolutionary John Zerzan has been widely credited with inspiring the new generation of antiglobalization activists. Collecting essays and interviews, Running on Emptiness reflects Zerzan's wide range of interests, from the political ("We All Live in Waco") to the personal ("So ... How Did You Become an Anarchist?"). This book deftly mixes history, anthropology, science, cultural theory, and politics to offer a critique of society as well as a blueprint for change.
