Remaking Society is a primer on Murray Bookchin’s ideas. In a free and easy writing style, it takes the reader through anthropology; the emergence of hierarchy and modern capitalism; technology; utopian radical solutions; urbanization and communities; and the ethics of social ecology – or toward a philosophy of nature and community.
A major spokesman for the ecology and appropriate technology movements, Murray Bookchin is the author of critically acclaimed works like The Limits of the City and The Ecology of Freedom, which Theodore Roszak calls “the most important contribution to ecological thought in our generation.” Recently, another of his provocative works was published, The Rise of Urbanization and the Decline of Citizenship.
To anyone new to his work, here is a clear synthesis of Bookchin’s ideas.
“We should have listened to Murray Bookchin. For two decades he has been warning us about what we are doing to our society and what we are doing to one another.” —The Nation
“…an intellectual tour de force…the first synthesis of the spirit, logics and goals of the European “Green Movement” available in English.” —Choice
