In the current political climate, we urgently need to rediscover the best of radical America. An essential part of that story is Wendell Berry. Few of us can live, or even aspire to, his kind of life. But "nobody can risk ignoring him" (Andrew Marr, The New Statesman)
Though published first in 1993, the elucidations and explorations in this volume are more critical to our national dialog than ever
Berry's essential perspective is not entirely liberal, nor entirely conservative, and it's not even entirely libertarian; this prismatic perspective is one we urgently need as we attempt understand and balance the needs of rural and urban America in government. As Kirkus wrote ahead of the 1993 publication of Sex, Economy, Freedom & Community: "Berry once again carves out a unique position in American social debate; not liberal (he hates big government), not libertarian (he would balance individual rights along with those of the commonwealth), but always sharp-tongued and aglow with common sense."
