Freyfogle, Eric T.:
The New Agrarianism: Land, Culture, and the Community of Life - new book

ISBN: 9781559639200

The engaging writings gathered in this new book explore an important but little-publicized movement in American culture -- the marked resurgence of agrarian practices and values in rural areas, suburbs, and even cities. It is a movement that in widely varied ways is attempting to strengthen society's roots in the land while bringing greater health to families, neighborhoods, and communities. "The New Agrarianism" vividly displays the movement's breadth and vigor, with selections by such award-winning writers as Wendell Berry, William Kittredge, Stephanie Mills, David Orr, Scott Russell Sanders, and Donald Worster.As editor Eric Freyfogle observes in his stimulating and original introduction, agrarianism is properly conceived in broad terms, as reaching beyond food production to include a wide constellation of ideals, loyalties, sentiments, and hopes. It is a temperament and a moral orientation, he explains, as well as a suite of diverse economic practices -- all based on the insistent truth that people everywhere are part of the land community, as dependent as other life on its fertility and just as shaped by its mysteries and possibilities.The writings included here have been chosen for their engaging narratives as well as their depiction of the New Agrarianism's broad scope. Many of the selections illustrate agrarian practitioners in action -- restoring prairies, promoting community forests and farms, reducing resource consumption, reshaping the built environment. Other selections offer pointed critiques of contemporary American culture and its market-driven, resource-depleting competitiveness. Together, they reveal what Freyfogle identifies as the heart and soul of the NewAgrarianism: its yearning to regain society's connections to the land and its quest to help craft a more land-based and enduring set of shared values."The New Agrarianism" offers a compelling vision of this hopeful new way of living. It is an essential book for social critics, community activists, organic gardeners, conservationists, and all those seeking to forge sustaining ties with the entire community of life. The New Agrarianism: Land, Culture, and the Community of Life Freyfogle, Eric T. This is an edited volume with essays by leading writers including Wendell Berry, Scott Russell Sanders, William Kittredge, Stephanie Mills, David Orr, and Donald Worster. It offers a description and overview of the "New Agrarian" movement in America, typified by writers like Wendell Berry who are concerned with re-establishing connections between humans and the land, through activities such as organic farming and community-supported agriculture, ecological restoration, community-based conservation, and bioregionalism, as well as movements toward "voluntary simplicity" and other approaches to reducing resource consumption.
