In this collection of essays, Adam Michael Krause describes the environmental and political dangers we face, as well as the mechanisms that keep them in place, while offering ideas on how to extricate ourselves from this terrifying predicament.

While moving between topics like Shakespeare, Shakers, Richard Pryor, John Brown, civil disobedience, the Book of Revelation, and the theory of relativity, Krause’s prose elegantly weaves a cohesive call to action.

Composed of revised and expanded versions of two previously published pamphlets, plus two new essays and an afterword, Krause provides essential reading for anyone who would like our descendants to actually exist.

Adam Michael Krause is an author, musician, activist, and carpenter based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. His first book was Art as Politics (2011).
