Culture of the Land

Edited by Norman Wirzba

This series is devoted to the exploration and articulation of a new agrarianism that considers the health of habitats and human communities together. Far form being a naive call to return to the land, the books show how agrarian insights and responsibilities can be worked out in diverse fields of learning and living: history, politics, economics, literature, philosophy, urban planning, education, and public policy. Agrarianism is a comprehensive worldview that, unlike other forms of environmentalism that often presuppose an antagonistic relationship between wilderness and civilization, appreciates the intimate and practical connections that exist between humans and the earth.

Series Editor Norman Wirzba is Professor of Theology, Ecology, and Agrarian Studies at Duke University.
