Precarious Possibilities of Life in Capitalist Ruins

Anthropologist Anna Lowenhaupt-Tsing examines our precarious present – where environmental degradation and economic alienation threaten to dismantle ways of life (and actual life itself) – and explains why collaborative survival in the future requires a radical re-imagining of growth, modernity and progress.

Anna is author of The Mushroom at the End of the World: On the Possibility of Life in Capitalist Ruins from Princeton University Press.
