Auteur: Potter, Will
Titel: Green is the new red
Sub titel: An Insider's Account of a Social Movement Under Siege
"Part history, part action thriller and courtroom drama, part memoir, `Green is the New Red' plunges us into the wild, unruly, and entirely inspirational world of extreme environmental activism. Will Potter, participant-observer and partisan-reporter, is the perfect guide, unpacking with wit and skill the most elusive concepts--his discussion of 'terrorism' as myth and symbol is the finest I've ever read. He takes us inside the first moments of a movement in the making--idealistic, hopeful, deeply human in its aspirations and its oh-so-human failings--and he reports brilliantly on a ruling power willing to hollow out any sense of authentic democracy in its futile attempt to maintain dominance, privilege, and their arid version of reality. `Green is the New Red' is an indispensable book that will change the way we think about commitment, the limits of protest, and the possibility of radical change."
