Product description

Review

"This engaging reader, with lively contextual writing by the editors, presents the best thinking about localization, going back to Fritz Schumacher, Ivan Illich, and Wendell Berry and forward to Rob Hopkins, Rachel and Stephen Kaplan, and Sharon Astyk. The Localization Reader is an eclectic mix of great writing and plugs a decade-long gap of serious books on this subject."--Ted Bernard, Professor, Environmental Studies Program, Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, Ohio University "'Think globally, act locally' means thinking about the local as well as the global. De Young and Princen provide both new essays and classics that delve deeply into localization. This book will transform the way we think about sustainability as both a personal and a political issue."--Thomas Dietz, Professor of Sociology and Environmental Science and Policy and Animal Studies, Assistant Vice President for Environmental Research, Michigan State University "Global warming drives environmental change. Resource scarcities threaten the economy. The Localization Reader provides critical information, inspiring visions, and sound advice to get on top of these processes rather than live in fear of them."--Richard B. Norgaard, University of California, Berkeley "A needed entry in the discussion of alternative futures. Students will benefit greatly from its concerns and insights."--Daniel Mazmanian, Director, John Bedrosian Center on Governance and the Public Enterprise, University of Southern California

From the Author

All royalties for The Localization Reader are allocated to two community organizations that exemplify localization. Growing Hope is an organization dedicated to helping people improve their lives and their communities through gardening, healthy food and local food security (growinghope.net) and the People's Food Co-op has long sought to feed a community with wholesome food and good work (peoplesfood.coop).
