Biography

Derrick Jensen is the prize-winning author of A Language Older Than Words, The Culture of Make Believe, Listening to the Land, Strangely Like War, Welcome to the Machine, and Walking on Water. He was one of two finalists for the 2003 J. Anthony Lukas Book Prize, which cited The Culture of Make Believe as "a passionate and provocative meditation on the nexus of racism, genocide, environmental destruction and corporate malfeasance, where civilization meets its discontents." He is an environmental activist and lives on the coast of northern California.

Media reviews

"Now and then, a landmark book such as Rachel Carson's Silent Spring makes the public keenly aware of the vulnerability of nature to human intervention. Strangely Like War exposes the crisis of the large-scale destruction of the world's forests. Jensen and Draffan have written a passionate expose of the unprecedented greed and power of the timber industry and of the government's role in abetting corporate irresponsibility. Written with conviction, fervour, and facts, this significant work is highly recommended."
