In his new book Escaping Dystopia: Rebuilding a Public Domain, Stephen McBride offers a sharp, “big picture” analysis of contemporary crises. Instead of portraying major transformative challenges as rather uncontrollable “exogenous shocks”, he sheds light on their systemic roots and critically discusses the potential of three basic options as escape routes from a dystopian future.
According to Randall Germain (Carleton University), Escaping Dystopia “clearly identifies the challenges facing us, and what we can do about them. It should be required reading for everyone who wants to advance change.”
