Reviews

"The thread connecting these articles is a desire to strip the rhetoric of catastrophism from all sides so that society can confront and solve real threats, and while the prose veers from jargon to straight talk and back again, each author offers valuable contributions to the discourse." --Publishers Weekly
"At its heart, Catastrophism states that fear-based politics are a dead end. Hopefully, this can be the spark for new discussions, more rational debate, and a collective change in direction for government." --www.CityBookReview.com
"According to the authors, catastrophism hinders, rather than hastens, political action on climate change or the development of a new economic system." --Brooklyn Rail
"Catastrophism launches a vital conversation for our crisis-laden era. In a time of real dangers and unreal cures, this is a book to read and savor with family and friends." --www.populist.com
"Posited as an intervention of sorts, Catastrophism is seemingly aimed to create debate on the Left." --www.LeftEyeOnBooks.com
"The author's call for an environmental and left-wing politics animated by a faith in people's ability to change the world is all the more timely." --Nicholas Beuret, Red Pepper
"Catastrophism is an important contribution to ongoing conversations about strategy and organizing on the left." --Scott Neigh, A Canadian Lefty in Occupied Land
