Imperiled Life: Revolution against Climate Catastrophe, by Javier Sethness-Castro (June 2012); Foreword by Paul Messersmith-Glavin


Imperiled Life is also available at Reading Frenzy, downtown at 921 SW Oak, near Powell's.


Imperiled Life theorizes an exit from the potentially terminal consequences of capital-induced climate change. It is a collection of reflections on the phenomenon of catastrophe—climatological, political, social—as well as on the possibilities of overcoming disaster.

The fourth title in our Anarchist Intervention Series, co-published with AK Press! With a Foreword by IAS board member and member of the editorial collective of Perspectives on Anarchist Theory Paul Messersmith-Glavin.

Javier Sethness-Castro presents the grim news from contemporary climatologists while providing a reconstructive vision inspired by anarchist intellectual traditions and promoting critical thought as a means of changing our historical trajectory.

Praise for Imperiled Life:

"Imperiled Life is an angry and urgent dissection of the omnivorous economic system that is mercilessly turning the planet into a death camp."—Jeffrey St. Clair, author Born Under a Bad Sky
