UPDATE AUG 17/11
The republication mentioned below back in January of "The Failure of Technology", the English translation of F.G.Jünger's "Die Perfektion der Technik", is apparently not going to happen. So, until someone does republish it, I feel little guilt in publicizing this downloadable scanned version I found on the web in Google Documents.
It is worth every minute of your time, every calorie of your effort. If the powers that control our material world could understand half as much as he did, we'd be on the way to a real solution - and had they understood it back when he wrote this prescient book in 1949, we would be in half as much trouble today environmentally, economically and to some degree even spiritually....

A while ago, in the context of the BP environmental disaster, I wrote about this fantastic book of Ernst Jünger´s brother Friedrich Georg Jünger - in English published as "The Failure of Technology". I am in such awe of the insights in this book that I must spread the news of its republication in German ... if it leads to just one other person reading it seriously.
Alethes Press had plans to republish it in English in spring 2010 - but I never heard any more about it - I hope they are still in business. In any case, keep your eyes open for this one; new or used, it is a secret treasure!

Zwei neue Rezension zum Hörbuch "Der Waldgang" sind letztlich erschienen (danke Tobias Wimbauer!):
"Fränkischen Nachrichten" 15. August 2011, S. 23:
Ernst Jüngers "Der Waldgang" ist ein unausweichlicher Trittstein zum Roman Eumeswil und zur Figur des Anarchs - deshalb möchte ich hier etwas Reklame für das neue Hörbuch zum Roman (Edition Apollon) machen. (Nun auch bei Tobias Wimbauer Buchversand erhältlich: €23.99 versandkostenfrei Lieferung in Deutschland).
