ABOUT THE BOOK:

This brilliant bestselling title offers a critical examination of the very idea of “civilization.”

One of two finalists for the 2003 J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize, The Culture of Make Believe was cited as “a passionate and provocative meditation on the nexus of racism, genocide, environmental destruction and corporate malfeasance, where civilization meets its discontents.”

PRAISE:

“Derrick Jensen tears our illusions from us with his shocking yet graceful prose. It might numb us, but no. The Culture of Make Believe is a masterpiece. It stirs us with the excitement of being in a truer world, being our truer selves. Derrick Jensen is a public intellectual who both breaks and mends the reader’s heart.

Frances Moore Lappé, author of Diet for a Small Planet
