It has been written of Wendell Berry that one can hardly speak of him without the word "prophetic" coming to mind. One of our wisest and most clear-sighted thinkers, he has provoked -- and inspired -- millions of readers. Now, in eight essays penned at his Kentucky farmstead, he takes on important themes of the current social debate. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.

display_description 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 which faced near the end of the twentieth-century. 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 which is destroying the earth, our communities, and all they represent. Throughout the book Berry asks, What is appropriate? What is worth conserving from our past and preserving in our present? What is it to be human and truly connected to others? What does it mean to be free?
