"Eminently quotable and passionately argued essays [by] farmers, philosophers, scientists, and environmentalists . . . Highly recommended." -Library Journal (starred review) Agrarian philosophy, a compelling worldview with advocates around the globe, encourages us to develop practices and policies that promote the sustainable health of the land, community, and culture. In this remarkable anthology are fifteen essays from Wendell Berry, Vandana Shiva, Wes Jackson, Gene Logsdon, Brian Donahue, Eric Freyfogle, David Orr, and others. The Essential Agrarian Reader calls us to celebrate the gifts of the earth, through honest work and respect for the land. "Here is a primer on real 'homeland security'-on preserving the sources of clean air, pure water, nutritious food, caring communities, and good work. If you wish to understand what's wrong with our present way of life, and if you wish to envision a more decent, sustainable, and joyful alternative, read on." -Scott Russell Sanders
