Sinopsis: Book by Freyfogle Eric T

Críticas: "Freyfogle manages to present even his boldest assertions of the necessity for a pro-life consercation movement in ways that make it a perfectly consistent and logical precondition for sound conservation." -- Tobias J. Lanz "Chronicles" Eric Freyfogle, one of the most astute observers of law and land in the U.S., here asks us to rethink the roots of the Good Society. This is an eloquent and wise book that calls us to return to agrarian fundamentals. Highly recommended. -- David W. Orr, author of Earth in Mind: On Education, Environment, and the Human Prospect Agrarianism in the Good Society is the work of a seasoned thinker and activist. Freyfogle leaves the reader with the relieved sense that somewhere, somehow, capable people are actually thinking hard, and thinking practically, about the kinds of troubles politicians rarely dare to address. This book brims with clear thinking for muddled times. -- Eric J. Miller, Geneva College To own land is to assume a vital societal responsibility that extends across the landscape to neighbors, wildlife, and generations yet unborn. Such is Eric Freyfogle''s message in Agrarianism and the Good Society, a wide ranging and persuasively presented reexamination of our relationship to the earth that sustains us. As one of our most passionate and thoughtful scholars, Freyfogle draws upon the teachings of Aldo Leopold, Wendell Berry, and others, to set forth commonsense prescriptions for shifting societal attitudes toward property away from an individualistic ethic and toward community responsibility. In doing so, he challenges conventional ideas, reinvigorates traditional values, and offers a compelling new cultural view of land health. -- Robert B. Keiter, author of Keeping Faith with Nature: Ecosystems, Democracy, and America''s Public Lands -It is a political, ecological, intellectual, and personal work providing grand insight to the politics of our time.- -- Material Culture --In this diverse collection of essays, Freyfogle covers much well-worn intellectual terrain with fresh eyes as he explores issues of conservation, landuse, and environmental stewardship in engaging, folksy prose that will surely please audiences far beyond the academy. Indeed, this is not your typical academic book, and those who approach the work expecting a detached tome will surely be disappointed.- -- Nicolaas Mink, Environmental History- -- Nicolaas Mink, Environmental History --Freyfogle manages to present even his boldest assertions of the necessity for a pro-life consercation movement in ways that make it a perfectly consistent and logical precondition for sound conservation.-- -- Tobias J. Lanz, Chronicles -Freyfogle's work is distinguished by its grasp of legal principles, its attention to history, its openness to insights from religious traditions, and its focus on the role of imagery and rhetoric in shaping our behavior. He also writes with a clarity and vigor that are rare today in prose informed by serious scholarly inquiry. However the shift to an ecologically wiser way of life comes about, the arguments laid out here, and especially the vision of land and community health, will point us in the direction we need to go.- -- Scott Russell Sanders, author of A Private History of Awe -To own land is to assume a vital societal responsibility that extends across the landscape to neighbors, wildlife, and generations yet unborn.
