Three essays written in the aftermath of September 11, 2001 that serve as reflections on the unfolding crisis.
  anne_fitzgerald | Oct 30, 2008 |
In three succinct and lucid essays, Wendell Berry makes an eloquent plea for community self-sufficiency and global engagement with eye toward a less industrialized, more sustainable future. Warnings about labor and environmental degradation in the face of unchecked global free-trade agreements have been well-made prior to this little book, just never with such elegantly crafted arguments. Berry concludes this slim volume with a strong case for protectionism as differentiated from isolationism and an admonition to stay focused on small, personal and local means of demonstrating how a better economy can work.
