I bought this from the AK Press table at SF Zine Fest. It seemed like it was pushing my buttons a bit with its criticisms of liberal environmentalist half-measures, so I thought I'd check it out. As other reviewers have pointed out, its solutions aren't really any more practical. The dialogues come off more like straw-man arguments. Still, it was somewhat through-provoking. But if these folks can't even take over the town of Eugene, Oregon, I don't really see how they're going to move beyond a vanguard to forment a global revolution.
