To Reach The Spring

TO REACH THE SPRING: FROM COMPLICITY TO CONSCIOUSNESS IN THE AGE OF ECO-CRISIS

An urgent and deeply felt call to face our complicity in the earth’s destruction.

In the shadow of an escalating eco-crisis—a looming catastrophe that will dwarf the fallout from COVID-19—how can we explain our society’s failure to act? What will we tell future generations? Are we paralyzed because the problem is so vast in scope, or are there deeper reasons for the widespread passivity? Nathaniel Popkin explores the moral, social, and psychological dimensions of the crisis, outlining a path to a future spring.

ADVANCE REVIEWS

“Nathaniel Popkin is a swordsmith. He hones words that cut deep through the lies and self-deceptions that license cruelty, revealing the brittle bones of an unjust, death-dealing culture. Everyone should read this book. It is clarifying, bracing, and ultimately transformative; truth-telling is essential for change, and change is essential.”
—Kathleen Dean Moore, author of Great Tide Rising
