From Democracy to Biocracy
Finding the River of Life
by W. Thomson Martin

In his second book W. Thomson Martin brings together the liberating force of outrage in service to life with the meditative rhythms of connecting to nature --- plants, animals, rivers and mountains. In the tradition of Thomas Berry and Joanna Macy, Tom inspires the reader to explore healing trails that can lead us from self-destructive behaviour to a healthier way of being human.From encounters with bears and foxes to the intricacies of biocratic urban design, this book in equal measure inspires, guides and restores courage and spirit.

In this swift and plain-speaking book, Tom Martin offers us the cleansing gift of outrage, so that with clearer vision we can receive the empowering message of our inter-existence with all life.

—Joanna Macy, Author of Coming Back to Life

"From Democracy to Biocracy suggests a beautiful, necessary path forward and supports its ideas with practical advice, solid research, and frequently lovely writing, both original and quoted."

— Rhonda Hayter,

Author, editor, and creator of Abbie Adams
