The Mushroom at the End of the World
On the Possibility of Life in Capitalist RuinsBook - 2017
Publisher's description: Matsutake is the most valuable mushroom in the world - and a weed that grows in human-disturbed forests across the northern hemisphere. Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing's account of this sought-after fungi offers insights into areas far beyond just mushrooms and addresses a crucial question: what manages to live in the ruins we have made? The Mushroom at the end of the world is an original examination of the relationship between capitalist destruction and collaborative survival within multispecies landscapes, the prerequisite for continuing life on earth.
