Product Description

Review

There is no one like Schumacher around today. We have very few sages and even fewer saints to help us. It is true that we have moved on a lot from the often simplistic thinking of the early 1970s. In other ways, however, we seem to have made little progress. But Schumacher's wisdom and spiritual insights live on in the work of the Schumacher Society, through the pages of Resurgence and in this fascinating collection of essays. --Jonathon Porritt

About the Author

E.F. Schumacher was an economist and practical philosopher whose ideas have been influential in shaping the modern environmental movement. He founded the Intermediate Technology Development Group (now called Practical Action) and was Chairman of the Soil Association in its early days. His achievements and influence are commemorated in the names of organisations which include the Schumacher Society (UK), Schumacher College in Dartington and the E.F. Schumacher Society in the USA.

Format: Paperback
The essays cover a broad range of subjects, from economics, all the way to spirituality/religion (and much more.. it's a veritable fortnight's fun in one.. like you might get at thorpe park). Schumacher conveys interesting and novel ideas in a way that is very easy to understand. And each essay can be read on it's own, so you can dip in and out of this book quite easily.

Whether you agree with Schumacher's points of view or not, you will find his work thought provoking.

A lot of love has gone in to producing this book by the editors. The book is beautifully printed on (appropriately) recycled paper of exceptional quality. The essays are well argued, and to the point, as one expects from Schumacher. His vision of an economics, expressed in Small Is Beautiful: A Study of Economics as if People Mattered, that includes compassion, spirituality and respect for the environment is as pertinent today as it was thirty or so years ago: essential, five-star reading.

My problem with this volume is that it adds little, or nothing, to that masterpiece. Most of the articles here here are either earlier versions of, or (e.g. the famous one on Buddhist Economics)the same as ones in the more famous work. There are a couple of new articles that are interest like the one that this volume takes its title from. But they are few.

Readers who already have read "Small Is Beautiful" would be better served revisiting that volume. Those who have not, will find the same ideas here. But I'd still point them there. Sadly, this volume for me is a write off.

It amazing that Schumacher's books came out in the sixties and seventies, and all his messages about meaning and spirit and nearness and wisdom are still as relevant as ever. And they still need to be heard - and acted upon!!

Schumacher, in easy to understand terms, explains the role of size in creating businesses with integrity, imagination and success..It helps in understanding a Big Box culture.
