"Here you have it, a forceful rejection of that gleeful, adolescent paranoia that masquerades as hardcore realism "catastrophism' is a wish expressed as a fear, a masochistic cop-out that postures as bravery. Welcoming the end of the world as the catalyst of political deliverance is one of the most irresponsible positions on offer. This book is a superb antidote to the unproductive politics of fear."
                             Christian Parenti, author of Tropic of Chaos

"Bravo! Thishas been sorely needed for so long to reveal the dead end that a politics founded on catastrophic predictions must lead to in terms of either preventing them or actually changing the world. Essential reading for all those on the left who are concerned with the question of strategy today."
    Leo Panitch, coauthor, "The Making of Global Capitalism"

"Catastrophism comes at the right moment: the year of The End proclaimed across the political spectrum from deep ecologists to the Mayan Calendarists It is a warning not to abandon everyday anticapitalist politics for a politics of absolute fear that inevitably leads to inaction."
  Silvia Federici, author, Revolution at Point Zero: Housework, Reproduction, and Feminist Struggle

Sasha Lilley, a writer and radio broadcaster, is the co-founder and host of the critically acclaimed program of radical ideas, Against the Grain.
