By Thomas H. Naylor; Introduction by Kirkpatrick Sale
5.5 x 8.25 • 240 pages
America has lost its moral authority to huge corporate interests, say Secession movement leaders. This remarkable book shows how a seemingly wild political idea continues to grow and create debate on our unsustainable, ungovernable and unfixable empire.
From Kirkpatrick Sale’s introduction: “Secession may seem like an outlandish idea at first, but when considered forthrightly and un-prejudicially it becomes a powerful alternative to other kinds of political action. Thomas Naylor has here charted a brave and inspiring course for any American interested in practical, useful, thoroughgoing social and political change in America.” Kirkpatrick Sale is the author of Rebels Against the Future.
Thomas H. Naylor, professor emeritus of Duke University and co-author of Affluenza and The Search for Meaning, is founder and chair of the Second Vermont Republic, the foremost secessionist organization in the country.
