4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best - and just as relevant as when written, 7 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: One No, Many Yeses: A Journey to the Heart of the Global Resistance Movement (Paperback)
You might think, seven years on, it may now not be worth reading - but it is. And I say this as someone who is fairly well read in this field - for example David Korten's work egThe Post-Corporate World: Life After Capitalism; Bill McKibben's Deep Economy: Economics as if the World Mattered and David Harvey's The Enigma of Capital: And the Crises of Capitalism.
This sort of book needs to have both good analysis and good praxis (what do we do now?). Unlike many other writers, Kingsnorth provides both by letting other people tell their own stories.
Of course it would be good to have an update - to know the progress the various movements have made and how the characters he met might now amend their views - not least in the light of the latest global crisis. But the book inspires you to do your own research - and indeed take your own action.
Like another reader, I closed this book with a strong commitment to get off my backside and do more to give hope to others.
