PRODUCT INFORMATION

Description

Read [him] with pencil in hand, make notes, and hope that somehow our country and the world will soon come to see the truth that is told here. -- The New York Times Book Review In this collection of essays, first published in 1993, Wendell Berry continues his work as one of America's most necessary social commentators. With wisdom and clear, ringing prose, he tackles head-on some of the most difficult problems confronting us near the end of the twentieth century--problems we still face today. Berry elucidates connections between sexual brutality and economic brutality, and the role of art and free speech. He forcefully addresses America's unabashed pursuit of self-liberation, which he says is still the strongest force now operating in our society. As individuals turn away from their community, they conform to a rootless and placeless monoculture of commercial expectations and products, buying into the very economic system that is destroying the earth, our communities, and all they represent.
