An enduring guide to authentic self-discovery 11 Jun. 2004
By Robert L. Rose - Published on
Format: Paperback
I first read this book in 1979, toward the end of President Carter's term, a time when some of the moves toward "creative disintegration" and "deep organic remembrance" Roszak describes here were being given at least half a chance by citizens, corporations, and even the government. Then came the landslide of forgetfulness under the Reagan administration, when excess, surfeit, heedlessness and materialism were valorized as our divine right.
I urge you to read this book again, or for the first time, and remember once more the deep identity of person and planet.

To say this book is underrated is an understatement 23 Aug. 2014
By Colin D. Donoghue - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is one of the most intelligent and important books ever written about society, and not surprisingly, it's not recognized as such by the misguided mainstream.
