. “Over the years, Murray Bookchin has dedicated his remarkable talents and energy to many different domains: history, technology, social organization, the search for justice and freedom, and much else,’ writes radical linguist Noam Chomsky. “In every case, he has brought illumination and insight, original and provocative ideas, and inspiring vision. His new collection on radical democracy carries forward this lifetime of great achievement.” “Murray Bookchin is one of the most original and important radical thinkers and writers of the modern era,” explains Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Chris Hedges. “He understands the destructive force of corporate capitalism and the revolutionary zeal it will take to extricate ourselves from its grip.” Would Bookchin be a Vermont-based nonviolent secessionist today?
