MonkeyWrench Books launches its collaborative publishing venture with the release of Robert Jensen’s chapbook, We Are All Apocalyptic Now: On the Responsibilities of Teaching, Preaching, Reporting, Writing, and Speaking Out. In this new work, the University of Texas professor http://uts.cc.utexas.edu/~rjensen/index.html argues that we must honestly face the scope of the destabilizing changes that are underway. With a focus on social justice and ecological sustainability, the book offers the “calm apocalypticism” necessary to take the current crises seriously while maintaining a commitment to social change.
Jensen will discuss the book and copies will be on sale, with all proceeds benefiting MonkeyWrench and its important role as a radical community center.
