How to Blow Up a Pipeline

by: Andreas Malm

Publisher: Verso Books (2021)


Staff Pick by comrade: Derrick

Beginning with a dispelling of the dominant "non-violence" lens of previous mass movements and struggles, Andreas Malm urges readers to rethink what they learned about protests and direct action while living through the era of climate change. Filled with anecdotes of his life as a climate activist, interspersed with data and arguments against dominate perceptions of "appropriate" protesting, How to Blow Up a Pipeline ultimately lets the reader know that dealing with climate change doesn't need to be stuck between government mandates and climate fatalism.
