The Garden of Peculiarities is considered by major anarchist thinkers to be the primary twenty-first century anarchist essay, in the way that Guy Debord's Society of the Spectacle influenced political thought in the late twentieth century.
Jesus Sepulveda is a Chilean green anarchist with roots in Spain, Italy and Eugene, Oregon. His important work is both critical and inspirational, a human- and plant-centered antidote to the globalist technocracy.
'If we are to survive, we must remember the wisdom in this powerful and poetic book. The Garden of Peculiarities will in time, I believe, become a classic. Jesus Sepulveda shows us how to remember what we already know in our bodies.' -Derrick Jensen, author of A Language Older Than Words
'Profundity is sometimes delivered in small packages. This is one of those times. -Ward Churchill, author of Acts of Rebellion
'In The Garden of Peculiarities, Jesus Sepulveda intertwines the learned language of an academician with the common sense of a campesino, and the resulting philosophy is post-everything in its insistence on human experience and expectation as they evolved to be.' -Chellis Glendinning, author of My Name Is Chellis and I'm in Recovery from Western Civilization
'We have needed The Garden of Peculiarities. Far from the constricted academic style, the counter-politics of Sepulveda represents, as few texts do, the new emerging thought of Latin America, and it proves it is possible to build an anti-neoliberal and anti-globalization bridge between the First World and Southern Hemisphere societies.' -Lagos Nilsson, author of Contracultura y provocaciÛn
