The Next American Revolution
Sustainable Activism for the Twenty-First Century
by Grace Lee Boggs and Scott Kurashige
Foreword by Danny Glover and Afterword with Immanuel Wallerstein
The pioneering Asian American labor organizer and writer’s vision for intersectional and anti-racist activism.
In this powerful, deeply humanistic book, Grace Lee Boggs, a legendary figure in the struggle for justice in America, shrewdly assesses the current crisis—political, economical, and environmental—and shows how to create the radical social change we need to confront new realities. A vibrant, inspirational force, Boggs has participated in all of the twentieth century’s major social movements—for civil rights, women’s rights, workers’ rights, and more. She draws from seven decades of activist experience, and a rigorous commitment to critical thinking, to redefine “revolution” for our times.
A Field Guide to Climate Anxiety
How to Keep Your Cool on a Warming Planet
by Sarah Jaquette Ray
Gen Z’s first “existential toolkit” for combating eco-guilt and burnout while advocating for climate justice.
Drawing on a decade of experience leading and teaching in college environmental studies programs, Sarah Jaquette Ray has created an “existential tool kit” for the climate generation. Combining insights from psychology, sociology, social movements, mindfulness, and the environmental humanities, Ray explains why and how we need to let go of eco-guilt, resist burnout, and cultivate resilience while advocating for climate justice. A Field Guide to Climate Anxiety is the essential guidebook for the climate generation—and perhaps the rest of us—as we confront the greatest environmental threat of our time.
