“Before his 1969 assassination, Chairman Fred Hampton of the Black Panther Party in Chicago famously remarked that, ‘When one of us falls, 1000 will take his place.’ This book proves Fred’s point. No matter the degree of repression visited upon it, the spirit of revolution cannot be quelled.”—Ward Churchill, author of On the Justice of Roosting Chickens

As the destruction of nature reaches new extremes, resistance becomes ever more militant. Radical environmental groups are front page news. From laboratory bombings to the destruction of ski resorts, this emerging new militancy has been steadily upping the political ante. Authorities have responded in kind, handing down unprecedented heavy prison sentences for acts of property destruction. Congressional committees have been convened, the FBI has put revolutionary environmentalists at the top of their domestic terrorism list, and the "terrorists" themselves promise bigger and more spectacular assaults in the future. This anthology features a range of voices—from academics to armed revolutionaries—that explore this new form of political struggle. The first book of it’s kind on this increasingly important topic!

Steven Best, PhD, is chair of the department of philosophy at the University of Texas, El Paso. He has published numerous books and articles on philosophy, cultural criticism, social theory and animal rights, and is frequently interviewed by national print and radio media.

Anthony J. Nocella II is a peace activist who teaches workshops on mediating and negotiating in revolutionary environments.
