Here, "the prophet of the green revolution" identifies social ecology as an alternative to society's head-on collision with disaster. Murray Bookchin exposes the underpinnings of consumerism and contrasts the destructive reality of a market economy with the potential for social and ecological sanity offered by a moral economy. Murray Bookchin has been a major spokesperson for more than twenty years for the ecology, appropriate technology, and anti-nuclear movements. He is the author of many books, including The Spanish Anarchists, Our Synthetic Environment, The Limits of the City, Toward an Ecological Society, Urbanization Without Cities, Post-Scarcity Anarchism, and The Ecology of Freedom. The Modern Crisis, in which he proposes a fundamental and empowering reconstruction of politics based on face-to-face municipal democracy, is the perfect introduction to the ideas of this great social theorist. "Murray Bookchin stands at the pinnacle of the genre of utopian social criticism."---Stanley Aronowitz, The Village Voice
