Dispatches from the Front Lines of Climate Justice

What We're Fighting for Now Is Each Other

An urgent, on-the-ground look at some of the "new American radicals" who have laid everything on the line to build a stronger climate justice movement The science is clear: catastrophic climate change, by any humane definition, is upon us. At the same time, the fossil-fuel industry has doubled down, economically and politically, on business as usual. We face an unprecedented situation--a radical situation. As an individual of conscience, how will you respond? In 2010, journalist Wen Stephenson woke up to the true scale and urgency of the catastrophe bearing down on humanity, starting with the poorest and most vulnerable everywhere, and confronted what he calls "the spiritual crisis at the heart of the climate crisis." Inspired by others who refused to retreat into various forms of denial and fatalism, he walked away from his career in mainstream media and became an activist, joining those working to build a transformative movement for climate justice in America. In What We're Fighting for Now Is Each Other, Stephenson tells his own story and offers an up-close, on-the-ground look at some of the remarkable and courageous people--those he calls "new American radicals"--who have laid everything on the line to build and inspire this fast-growing movement: old-school environmentalists and young climate-justice organizers, frontline community leaders and Texas tar-sands blockaders, Quakers and college students, evangelicals and Occupiers. Most important, Stephenson pushes beyond easy labels to understand who these people really are, what drives them, and what they're ultimately fighting for. He argues that the movement is less like environmentalism as we know it and more like the great human-rights and social-justice struggles of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, from abolitionism to civil rights. It's a movement for human solidarity. This is a fiercely urgent and profoundly spiritual journey into the climate-justice movement at a critical moment--in search of what climate justice, at this late hour, might yet mean.

What We Are Fighting For

A Radical Collective Manifesto

What We Are Fighting For

The age of austerity has brought a new generation of protesters on to the streets across the world, leading Time magazine to name "the protester" as its 2011 personality of the year. As the economic crisis meets the environmental crisis, a whole generation fears what the future will bring but also dares to dream of a different society. What Are we Fighting For? answers the question that the mainstream media loves to ask the protesters. The first radical, collective manifesto of the new decade, its brings together some of the key theorists and activists from the new networked, web-savvy and creative social movements. Contributors include David Graeber (who coined the term "the 99%"), John Holloway, Nina Power, the Knowledge Liberation Front, and Owen Jones, author of the best-selling Chavs. Chapters outline the alternative vision which animates the movement – from "new economics" and "new governance" to "new social imagination." The book concludes by exploring new "tactics of struggle."

The Costs of War

America's Pyrrhic Victories

The Costs of War

The greatest accomplishment of Western civilization is arguably the achievement of individual liberty through limits on the power of the state. In the war-torn twentieth century, we rarely hear that one of the main costs of armed conflict is long-term loss of liberty to winners and losers alike. Beyond the obvious and direct costs of dead and wounded soldiers, there is the lifetime struggle of veterans to live with their nightmares and their injuries; the hidden economic costs of inflation, debts, and taxes; and more generally the damages caused to our culture, our morality, and to civilization at large. The new edition is now available in paperback, with a number of new essays. It represents a large-scale collective effort to pierce the veils of myth and propaganda to reveal the true costs of war, above all, the cost to liberty. Central to this volume are the views of Ludwig von Mises on war and foreign policy. Mises argued that war, along with colonialism and imperialism, is the greatest enemy of freedom and prosperity, and that peace throughout the world cannot be achieved until the central governments of the major nations become limited in scope and power. In the spirit of these theorems by Mises, the contributors to this volume consider the costs of war generally and assess specific corrosive effects of major American wars since the Revolution. The first section includes chapters on the theoretical and institutional dimensions of the relationship between war and society, including conscription, infringements on freedom, the military as an engine of social change, war and literature, and the right of citizens to bear arms. The second group includes reconsiderations of Lincoln and Churchill, an analysis of the anti-interventionist idea in American politics, a discussion of the meaning of the "just war," an assessment of how World War I changed the course of Western civilization, and finally two eyewitness accounts of the true horrors of actual combat by veterans of World War II. The Costs of War is unique in its combination of historical scope and timeliness for current debates about foreign policy and military intervention. It will be of interest to historians, political scientists, economists, and sociologists.

Down the Charles River in Pursuit of a New Environmentalism

My Green Manifesto

A frank and lighthearted argument for a new environmentalism, inspired by the author's rough-and-tumble cross-country and down-river travels, explains how a previous working environmental movement has given way to extremism and capitalist ventures, calling for a refocus on local issues grounded in holistic and more effective defenses.
