Zerzan can be seen as the militant version of Daniel Quinn (Ishmael) and is one of the primary theoretical influences for acclaimed environmental writer Derrick Jensen. He was an editor for the journal Green Anarchy Magazine (http://greenanarchy.anarchyplanet.org/) and has been interviewed multiple times for the New York Times, the UTNE reader, the Atlantic, NPR and other US and European Newspapers and Magazines and has appeared on a 60 minutes defending property destruction during the Seattle WTO protests in 1999.  He is the author of five books, the latest which is Future Primitive Revisited (2012).
