'This book is absolutely fundamental
for those who reject the unfortunate confusion between Jews,
Judaism, Zionism and the State of Israel -- a confusion
which is the basis for systematic manipulation by the
imperialist power system. It convincingly argues in favour
of a single secular state for Israelis and Palestinians as
the only democratic solution for the region.' Samir
Amin, Director of the Third World Forum
reader, herein you will find a sampling of my scribblings and
obsessions. What value they have derives from immersion in the great
crisis of our time: the struggle between global capital, on the one
side, and humanity and nature, on the other. I began my activism and
writing in the sixties, opposing racism and the US wars in
Indochina, and continue today, as the struggle is increasingly waged
in terms of capital's assault on ecologies. Looking back, I see a
string of defeats; yet I would not have us despair, for though the
road is long and hard, the journey is worth taking. I hope that you
will find the contents of this website helpful as you travel on.
Joel Kovel was born in 1936, in Brooklyn, NY, and spent his
early years there and on Long Island. He attended Yale
College and then studied medicine at Columbia University
(MD, 1961) and psychiatry at the Albert Einstein College of
Medicine, eventually becoming Professor of Psychiatry and
Director of Residency Training at that institution. He also
holds a diploma in psychoanalysis from the Downstate Medical
Center Institute. After practicing psychiatry and
psychoanalysis for twenty four years, he left these
professions in the mid-1980s, in part because of
dissatisfaction with the health care system. Since 1988 he
has been Professor of Social Studies at Bard College,
Joel Kovel is both a scholar and an activist. In the former
capacity he has published nine books and over a hundred
articles and reviews. His books include White Racism, which
was nominated for a National Book Award in 1972; A Complete
Guide to Therapy; The Age of Desire (in which his work in
the psychiatric-psychoanalytic system is detailed); Against
the State of Nuclear Terror; In Nicaragua; The Radical
Spirit; History and Spirit(1991); Red Hunting in the
Promised Land (1994), a study of anticommunist repression in
America; and The Enemy of Nature: The End of Capitalism or
The End of the World (Zed, 2002). Since 2003 he has been
Editor-in-Chief of the quarterly journal, Capitalism Nature
As an activist, Joel Kovel has been engaged in struggles for
peace and justice since the Vietnam War era. He has worked
within the antiwar and antinuclear movements, the solidarity
movements in Central America and the Caribbean, the
movements for democratic media, and, increasingly, for
ecological transformation. He lived in Nicaragua for a
period in 1986, and accompanied Pastors for Peace as they
broke the US blockade on Cuba in their 1994 Friendshipment.
He has acted in films, worked frequently with the Bread and
Puppet theatre, and lectured on four continents.
Kovel joined the Green Party since 1990. In 1998, he was the
Green Party candidate for US Senator from New York, and in
2000 sought their Presidential nomination.
Kovel is married, has three children, three stepchildren and
five grandchildren. He lives in Willow, a rural district of
Woodstock, in Ulster County.
