To call Berry's critiques of American culture and agriculture "insightful" would be a gross understatement. Over thirty years after they were written, Berry's words still have both currency and immediacy. In the 1970's he both saw to the root of and diagnosed problems that have only become more pressing in the twenty-first century. Berry's words are truly prescient. While Berry is heavily critical of American culture and agriculture, he does not criticize from afar. Berry wishes to call Americans back to the positive heritage of Jeffersonian democracy. Berry offers an alternative way to understand what it means to be an American citizen: a way that involves responsibility and restraint. This book is a must-read. Berry's powerful arguments are couched in his characteristically clear and beautiful prose. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

Berry is an incredible author and I am continually impressed with things he has written decades ago. This is a great book with wonderful insightful critique. It is not easy to accept his words, but I think very necessary.

A classic essay should be required reading in high schools and universities.
