Reviews - What do our customers think?
Mixed bag  Aug 10, 2007
I'm only about half way through but I think it's okay. Maybe a bit self-satisified. My Dad from Massachsetts, much more conservative, hated it and found it unreadable. He particularly complained about the article on growing food on the commons; it was in Weston, MA - one of the richest towns in a rich state, which lost all credibility.
an essential resource for all earth dwellers  May 12, 2007
This collection of writings provides a full spectrum of academic approaches to the subject of living on earth - sustainably. It identifies the consequences of choices, those that are, ultimately, unsustainable, and those that could lead to a liveable future.

The fact that my copy was eagerly borrowed by a graduate student economist will serve as an indication of its value and relevance.
The Essential Agrarian Reader  Mar 16, 2005
Did not like, thought stories were full of Idealistic nonsense. Unrealistic options for the family farmer.
The agrarian ethic is essential to our survival  Jan 14, 2004
Editor Norman Wirzba's counsel that we cannot live well if we do not attend to the human and non-human "bonds of relationship" is of deep import in an age of mindless surfeit masquerading as self-realization.
