9780199342488: Ecology or Catastrophe: The Life of Murray Bookchin
Críticas:

Biehl has an insider's view of Bookchin as both his collaborator and his lover, and she uses that insight to paint a detailed and lively picture of this important figure. ( Publishers Weekly)

Biehl's biography ? for illuminating the emergence and contexts of these ideas?may very well be the best introduction we have to social ecology today. ... Janet Biehl has done a remarkable job bringing Bookchin "back to life" for new generations. ( New Compass)

The prescient Bookchin emerges in Janet Biehl's politics-heavy biography as incisive, inventive and pragmatic ? a refreshing contrast to today's environmental doom-mongers and techno-utopians alike. ( Nature)

[A]n admirably thorough guide to both Bookchin's remarkable intellectual evolution and to the concrete issues and debates that informed it. It is also a well-written and highly accessible introduction to Bookchin and his ideas that promises to help keep his legacy alive for the next generation of political and environmental activists. ... [Biehl's] engaging and useful book has injected fresh life into Bookchin's vision for an ecological and libertarian left by demonstrating its relationship to vital questions and tactics and strategy that continue to be debated by present-day activists. ( Environmental Politics)

Janet Biehl's biography of Bookchin is a very readable account of his long involvement in various struggles of the US left... ( Simon Butler, LINKS: International Journal of Socialist Renewal)

Críticas:

"Biehl has an insider's view of Bookchin as both his collaborator and his lover, and she uses that insight to paint a detailed and lively picture of this important figure." -- Publishers Weekly"Janet Biehl's meticulously researched biography splendidly captures Bookchin's intellectual and personal journey from youthful communist to mature anarchist. Bookchin influenced the thinking and actions of a generation but today his writings and insights are largely unknown. Biehl's terrific book will do much to overcome this illiteracy and introduce a new generation to one of the key intellectuals of our time." -- David Morris, Director, Public Good Initiative, Institute for Local Self-Reliance"Murray Bookchin was irascible, human, brilliant, and above all relevant to our own time. This valuable book brings his work to life and takes us through his intellectual, activist and personal struggles between the late 1930s and the end of the 20th Century. An ecologist before the term was understood by most Americans and a sophisticated anarchist who recognized the importance of clear (but decentralized) organizational structure, Bookchin's story also offers a reminder of what it takes to live a committed life in our own time in history." -- Gar Alperovitz, Lionel R. Bauman Professorof Political Economy at the University of Maryland, Co-Founder of The Democracy Collaborative

Descripción Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 235 x 168 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Murray Bookchin (1921-2006) was one of the most significant and influential environmental philosophers of the twentieth century. The founder of the social ecology movement, Bookchin was presenting and publishing foundational ideas about issues like air and water pollution, nuclear radiation, and the dangers of fossil fuels. He was a genuinely original and prescient thinker who was grappling with problems that we still face today-and proposing solutions for them-before most people realized those problems existed. In addition to his work in ecology, Bookchin was also a noted leftist, and he worked to create an authentic, indigenous American Left. Ecology or Catastrophe: The Life of Murray Bookchin is the first-ever biography of Murray Bookchin, written by his personal collaborator and copyeditor, Janet Biehl. From 1987-2006, Biehl edited every word that Bookchin wrote, and worked with him on numerous articles and books. She tells the story of Bookchin s life from a perspective that no one else could, providing a comprehensive biography that examines this pioneer environmentalist s life on both personal and professional levels. She uses her access to Bookchin s papers as well as extensive archival research, and draws upon nearly two decades worth of a personal relationship with Bookchin. The book discusses the variety of philosophies and movements that Bookchin helped lead, including social ecology, assembly democracy, and even, in certain instances, anarchism. Ecology or Catastrophe is the definitive biography of Murray Bookchin, written by the person who knew him best. Nº de ref. de la librería AOP9780199342488
