Press Action Names Derrick Jensen the Top of 2008’s Dynamic Dozen

Press Action, an online publication of news analysis and commentary, has named Derrick Jensen, author of A Language Older Than Words and The Culture of Make Believe, to be their top pick for their 2008 class of Press Action’s Dynamic Dozen—a collection of the most dynamic reporters, authors and commentators of 2008. From the article:

This honor may not rank as high as Utne Reader naming him one of the ’50 Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World.’ Utne Reader says Jensen is the “green thinker and writer who’s out to tell us not what we want to hear but what we need to hear.” Press Action agrees.”
