" WITH A FOREWORD BY BARBARA KINGSOLVER A compelling worldview with
advocates from around the globe, agrarianism challenges the
shortcomings of our industrial and technological economy. Not
simply focused on farming, the agrarian outlook encourages us to
develop practices and policies that promote the health of land,
community, and culture. Agrarianism reminds us that no matter how
urban we become, our survival will always be inextricably linked to
the precious resources of soil, water, and air. Combining fresh
insights from the disciplines of education, law, history, urban and
regional planning, economics, philosophy, religion, ecology,
politics, and agriculture, these original essays develop a
sophisticated critique of our culture's current relationship to the
land, while offering practical alternatives. Leading agrarians,
including Wendell Berry, Vandana Shiva, Wes Jackson, Gene Logsdon,
Brian Donahue, Eric Freyfogle, and David Orr, explain how our goals
should be redirected toward genuinely sustainable communities.
These writers call us to an honest accounting and correction of our
often destructive ways. They suggest how our society can take
practical steps toward integrating soils, watersheds, forests,
wildlife, urban areas, and human populations into one great
system-a responsible flourishing of our world and culture.
