Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This collection of 34 essays by philosophers, theologians, farmers, political scientists, economists, and academicians examines the role of the community and sense of place in our lives. Part 1, "Rediscovering the Landscape," examines the forces that influence our mobility and cause us to drift away from our roots. Part 2, "Community Foundations," attempts to define and describe communities and the boundaries and social forces that help maintain them. Part 3, "Becoming Native," challenges us to build communities, establish roots, and make our communities attractive and livable. These tantalizing and provocative essays will change readers' perspectives about the importance of community. The authors believe that the sense of participation one derives from "a place" is good for society, for the economy, and for each individual. They make no apologies for their disdain for the widespread mobility and lack of rootedness in today's world. Highly recommended for social science and environmental collections.?Irwin Weintraub, Rutgers Univ. Lib., New Brunswick, N.J.

From the Back Cover

This book is a collection of new and previously published essays that take as their central theme the importance of 'placed' human beings, but each of us is enriched to the extent that we can belong to, and participate in, a well-ordered human community integrated into the natural landscape of a particular place.

Rooted in the land is enormously helpful in understanding the history of rural life. It also explains the dynamics of rural-urban relations and the toll taken upon rural life by the extracting economic resources from rural communities by corporations. It serves up several models for healthy change in our current food system that would make it healthier. A new "foodshed" would shift food production from emphasis of profit to growing healthy foods for those who eat. This shift would bring new economic models that would better serve us in a post industrial community. There is much food for thought.
