Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Future Primal will provide a cornerstone for our emerging vision of a planetary civilization....The political vision we have been waiting for.”
Brian Thomas Swimme, coauthor with Thomas Berry of The Universe Story

“A vision of a new kind of politics for a new era of humanity...A seminal book that bears witness to the folly of all those who say we cannot change.”
Wade Davis, National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence and author of Into the Silence

“This is a brilliant book. The work of a lifetime of profound and richly varied boundary-crossing experiences combined with broad and insightful intellectual inquiry, it addresses one of the most critical needs of our time in accessible, almost poetic prose. No words of mine can do it justice.”
David C. Korten, board chair of YES! magazine and author of The Great Turning, Agenda for a New Economy, and When Corporations Rule the World

“I’ve studied and worked with Bushman communities for twenty-five years, and only now after reading this book do I understand just how important their lessons are for humanity today....This is an eloquent, inspirational work.”
Craig Foster, ethnographic and wildlife documentary filmmaker and director of The Great Dance: A Hunter’s Story

“A unique contribution to rethinking our collective story, from our common past out of Africa toward a shared future on our endangered planet. To sink into this perspective is to see with fresh insight how we truly belong here — such a gift!”
Mary Evelyn Tucker, cofounder and codirector of the Forum on Religion and Ecology at Yale University
