James Howard Kunstler, Author, The Long Emergency

James Howard Kunstler is an author, social critic, public speaker, and blogger. He is best known for his books The Geography of Nowhere, a history of American suburbia and urban development, and the more recent The Long Emergency, where he argues that declining oil production is likely to result in the end of industrialized society as we know it and force Americans to live in localized, agrarian communities.
