More About the Author

I write about connection, loss, places and the things we never trouble to pay attention to. I write about power and the powerless, about community and freedom, about smallness and beauty and about the unstoppable nature of change. I write about the stories beneath the numbers and the spirits beneath the waters. All of this, and more, and sometimes less.

I have published two books of non-fiction, one collection of poetry and a novel. I have also written far too much journalism. I am co-founder of the Dark Mountain Project (www.dark-mountain.net), a global network of writers, artists, oddballs and outsiders who have stopped believing the stories we all grew up taking for granted.

Format: Paperback
Having just come off Naomi Klein's "Fences and Windows" and John Pilger's "The New Rulers of the World", I bought this book as it was the newest release in the same section. I read it in three sittings.
And then sat back in the sincere belief I've wasted my life.
Paul Kingsnorth avoids the cliched traps of soapboxing, political preaching and obvious moralising. Instead he's written a powerful account of his travels to the Hotspots at the heart of -as he calls it- "The Movement". He's been to Chiapas to meet the Zapatistas, the people who originally lit the touchpaper and refused to stand back and he was in Genoa when the Itialian Cops went on the rampage during the G8 summit. He's been there, he's seen it, he may not have bought the T-shirt but he kept his notebook handy and I, for one, am very glad. This is someone who cares about his subject, is concerned about the people who place themselves at the front line and conveys these feelings to his readers with admirable ease. The writing is urgent and vital, the stories are exciting, frightening, complex and inspiring. It all comes down to the human spirit and its refusal to lie down, to the hope that tomorrow can be a better day and that true unity does exist.
I've been recommending it to everyone I know, it should be required reading at schools.
Seriously, order it now. It's such an eye opener.

15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By J. Cronin VINE VOICE on 4 Jun. 2003
Format: Paperback
I really wanted to get to know why people protest outside meetings of the WTO and the G8 summit. I wanted to know about the anti-globalisation movement. What this book does is quite superb.
Kingsnorth has travelled around the world to Brazil, South Africa, USA and other places and has met fascinating characters, each of whom is trying to make a difference in their own part of the world. What comes across is that the global resistance movement is somehow not "global", while still worldwide. Each movement the author encounters is doing something specific for their own people, such as obtaining land for dispossessed farmers in Brazil or struggling to provide basic amenities in South Africa. What the author is quick to point out is that despite the localisation of all these movements, they strike a common chord with each other. They all face the same problem, namely, the removal of power from governing bodies to hugely influential corporations and trade organisations.
The author also tries to make it clear that the movement we see on our TV screens is not anti-everything, as the media sometimes makes them out to be, but instead, pro-many things.
This is a fascinating insight into many worthy causes, which we never hear about in the media. We only see the riots and tear gas. Instead there is much more that should be reported on, as is valiantly attempted by the author.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Spider Monkey HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 4 Jun. 2006
Format: Paperback
I have to say this is one of the best books i've read about the globalization issue. It is immensely easy to read and has many diverse examples from around the world of people fighting back to reclaim or protect their community. Where this book excels in by offering suggestions of things you can do to help so you're not left feeling totally helpless, as I have done after other books of a similar ilk. This is a fantastic book and essential reading in this genre.

Feel free to check out my blog which can be found on my profile page.

Format: Paperback
We really don't need yet another book about the evils of globalisation. There are too many around already. Fortunately this isn't one. Instead, it's an elegantly-written, funny and moving travelogue-cum-investigation of what the author believes is the beginning of a global revolution against corporate power, exploitation and the outreach of the new global economy. Kingsnorth spent eight months travelling through various heartlands of rebellion and revolution across several continents, meeting a whole cast of bizarre, inspiring and quite remarkable characters. His writing is immediate and involving, he opens your eyes to the on-the-ground reality of what 'globalisation' does to real people, rather than blinding you with bogus statistics, and he makes you care without telling you what to think. The result is a book that tells you a lot you didn't know, and unfolds some fascinating stories. A genuinely original book, and a must-read if you want to know the real story of what's going on out there, told by someone who has seen it for himself.
