All That Is Sacred Is Profaned--reviews, interview, and sample chapter!
The pre-sale for our latest release by Rhyd Wildermuth, All That Is Sacred is Profaned, continues until its release on 21 June, 2019.
We’ve received the following advanced praise from people who’ve read an early version of the book:
Rhyd’s masterful pedagogy and writing is a true service to the pagan community. I feel this is material that can magically reach out to a variety of people from differing backgrounds, various interests, differing levels of familiarity with Marxism. This book subtly and insistently reveals in a deep way the inherently political nature of the world and how an attentive reader might benefit from linking that sort of insight to her magic practice. This book could inspire a revolution.
Matthew Phillips, University English teacher and pagan Marxist, South Korea
Rhyd’s book is a great short introduction to Marx and his political and economic philosophy. The language is accessible and the ideas comprehensible, freed of much of Marx’s Victorian-era excess. Even if you don’t define yourself as a Marxist, understanding what he said is deeply necessary if we’re going to find ways to save ourselves and our planet.
I took Rhyd's class last winter, and while I have a foundation in Marx and subsequent political critics and theorists, I found Rhyd's primer and its corresponding discussions to be informative and illuminating. His writing style is straightforward, conversational, and approachable and spoke directly to me on a multitude of levels; especially in the context of a pagan lens. I'm excited this book will live in the world, and look forward to having my own copy to come back to!

We’re pleased to offer a sample chapter of the book for those who’d like to read part of it before purchasing it. The link for the chapter (chapter 3: The Birth & History of Capitalism) is here.
In addition, Rhyd Wildermuth was interviewed about the book by Patrick Farnsworth on his podcast, Last Born In The Wilderness. You can find that interview here.
Below, you’ll find information for the pre-order. Remember, reduced pricing continues until 21 June, 2019. And in addition, we’ve extended our four-year anniversary sale until the end of June, so it’s a great time to pick up other books and save on combined shipping.
