Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Walljasper, a contributing editor to National Geographic Traveler, provides a reader-friendly primer on the idea of a commons-based society, which he defines as one that places as much emphasis on social justice, democratic participation, and environmental protection as on economic competitiveness and private property. What seems to be a Far Left dream is remarkably realistic under Walljasper’s careful analysis. He presents real-world examples of resource sharing, such as how communal meadows for cow grazing have been remarkably efficient for centuries. Techies will appreciate the attention given to digital commons, while cultural historians will consider efforts to save endangered languages (one of the world’s commons) a valuable project. Wisely, Walljasper understands many Americans don’t recognize the extent to which they have already embraced the commons in their daily lives, and points out the significance of sidewalks, parks, coffee shops, and pedestrian shopping zones in our cities and towns. Covering subjects ranging from conservation efforts to Bob Dylan, this is a diverse guide for everyone looking to the future. --Colleen Mondor

Format: Paperback
I learned quite a bit from this book, from vocabulary to concepts to actions about the commons that we all own.

Enjoyable book to read because it included different writers, short and long pieces, cartoons, photos, quotations, checklists and interviews to pick and choose from.

This book helped me to see and understand how good works.

This book introduces the commons movement, what has created it and why. The age of oil and globalization have destroyed many common things that we share including our natural world. Unless we transition from a consumption based model to a stewardship based relationship to our earth and each other, this earth will likely not survive. This book helps us get started. If I could give it more stars I would.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Kieran Roe on February 23, 2011
Format: Paperback
I can't speak highly enough about this book and the wonderful insights it brings to our culture at a time when importance of "the commons" (the public realm of parks, libraries, universities, public media, the town square, etc.) as the setting for many of life's most meaningful experiences is all too often devalued or under-appreciated. Thought-provoking and inspiring.
