James Howard Kunsler's book "The Long Emergency"

Reader comment on item: James Howard Kunstler's Reactionary Futurology

Submitted by Jim Wright (United States), Jan 6, 2009 at 18:40

Daniel Pipes:

The article by Kunsler in Newsmax, "10 Ways to Prepare for a Post-oil Society", is based on "The Long Emergency", which, in turn, is his book that presents of his argument underlying the Newsmax article. If you haven't read that book you really are not properly prepared to attack Hunsler for the Newsmax article.

I haven't read his novel "World Made By Hand" but I suspect it, too, is based on "The Long Emergency".

Articles stand or fall on their own. I reject having to read a book to assess an article.
