Praise For The Next Revolution: Popular Assemblies and the Promise of Direct Democracy…
“Murray Bookchin is one of the most original and important radical thinkers and writers of the modern era. He understands the destructive force of corporate capitalism and the revolutionary zeal it will take to extricate ourselves from its grip.”
—Chris Hedges, author of Wages of Rebellion
“By far the most sophisticated radical proposal to deal with the creation and collective use of the commons across a variety of scales, and is well worth elaborating as part of the radical anticapitalist agenda.”
—David Harvey, author of Rebel Cities
“As an introduction to the thought of Murray Bookchin it is incredibly valuable and serves to motivate deeper engagement with his more detailed works on urbanization, social ecology, and ‘libertarian municipalism.’”
—Marx and Philosophy Review of Books
