Hi there! I review books and films. My emphasis is climate, but I occasional review other titles too.

Book Review: How To Blow Up A Pipeline

In honor of the release of the film How to Blow Up a Pipeline, I decided to review the nonfiction book of the same name that inspired the film.

I’m glad that I did.

Despite its provocative title, How to Blow Up a Pipeline by Andreas Malm isn’t a how-to manual for aspiring saboteurs. It’s a thought-provoking exploration of the history, ethicality, and strategic considerations of a broad range of violent and nonviolent tactics of resistance to systems of oppression, particularly the fossil fuel industry.
