"American people are sleepwalking into a future of hardship and turbulence. James Howard Kunstler, one of our shrewdest and most engaging social commentators, tells what to expect when we pass the tipping point of global peak oil production and enter the long arc of depletion - economic, political, and social changes on an epochal scale - sooner than we think." "The Long Emergency will change everything. Globalism will wither. Life will become profoundly and intensely local. The consumer economy will be a strange memory. Suburbia - considered a birthright and a reality by millions of Americans - will become untenable. We will struggle to feed ourselves. We may exhaust and bankrupt ourselves in the effort to prop up the unsustainable. And finally, the United States may not hold together as a nation. We are entering an uncharted territory of history." "The Long Emergency is a startling vision of what lies ahead, bringing new urgency and accessibility to the critical issues that will shape our future, and which we can no longer afford to ignore."--BOOK JACKET.… (mais)

Back in the seventies, I read Rolling Stone religiously because I loved reportage by the likes of Hunter S. Thompson, James Howard Kunstler and others. Then Thompson blew his brains out, Jann Wenner came out of the closet, and the whole enterprise went South. For all I can tell, Mr. Kunstler -- when he fled the burning building -- must have left his brain unnoticed in a corner somewhere.

If the first two pages of "The Long Emergency" are in any way typical of what Kunstler writes today, then Mr. Kunstler has sold me his last book. The typesetting is atrocious, the "vicissitudes" are "enormous," and ideas borrowed from Bob Heinlein in 1958 at this date seem stale. ( )

"A controversial hit that sparked debate among businessmen, environmentalists,
and bloggers, The Long Emergency is an eye-opening look at the unprecedented
challenges we face in the years ahead, as oil runs out and the global systems
built on it are forced to change radically." --back cover

Excellent analysis. Well thought out. The premise and conclusions are depressing, but so is a earthquake or hurricane. Since you can't prevent them, you might as well be as ready as you can be. ( )

Some years back when I read this, I loaned it out to everyone I knew. It really affected the way I see things. Highly recommend a read. ( )
