Progress is the God of the modern world. What happens once God is dead? Our society's worship of the idea of progress constitutes a formidable roadblock to successful adaptation to what our climate-changed, resource-depleted future has in store. John Michael Greer doesn't just identify that roadblock--he dynamites and bulldozes it, using his characteristically sharp wit and expansive knowledge of cultural history. ---Richard Heinberg, author, "The End of Growth" ... an excellent introduction to Greer's insightful big-picture thinking grounded in an all-too-rare knowledge of history, ecology, and economics. --- Rev. Michael Dowd, author, "Thank God for Evolution " ... Progress is not just a goal in the West--it's a religion. Our faith in progress drives the popular insistence that peak oil and climate change don't actually matter--after all, our lab-coated high priests will surely bring forth yet another miracle to save us all. Unfortunately, progress as we've known it has been entirely dependent on the breakneck exploitation of half a billion years of stored sunlight in the form of fossil fuels. As the age of this cheap, abundant energy draws to a close, our blind faith in exponential economic growth is coming up hard against unforgiving planetary limits. "After Progress" addresses this looming paradigm shift, exploring the shape of history from a perspective on the far side of the coming crisis. Required reading for anyone concerned about making sense of the future at a time when we must seek new sources of meaning, value and hope for the era ahead. ... ...a thought-provoking book [that] provides a cautionary tale about human illusions of domination over nature and scientific rescue from our excessive consumption of natural resources that we ignore at our peril. ---Paul Kivel, author, "Living in the Shadow of the Cross" ... John Michael Greer is a scholar of ecological history and an internationally renowned futurist whose blog, The Archdruid Report, has become one of the most widely cited online resources dealing with the fate of industrial society. He is the author of over 30 books, including "Green Wizardry" and "The Long Descent."

While I have tried my best, there is no guarantee that the data shown on this site (book prices or postage) are accurate. Always check the prices and postage on the web site before making any purchase. Please also note that including a site in the search result does not indicate any endorsement by this site or its owner. I may not have ever brought a book from them. But no-one ever reads the small print, so I'm probably the only one who knows this.
