Profound essays written over 20-years ago that are more applicable today than ever. This will be a book that I will re-read at some point again, in hopes of emulating and incorporating some of its spirit into my daily life and to gain increased perspective on Mr. Berry's insights. The essays critique various aspects of contemporary American life that we take for granted, warning against the hegemony of exploitative practices for profit of the few, war, religion, among many other points, and the importance of community and local interconnections of citizens in an increasingly globalized economy. If anything, it's a bit depressing to realize that the essays discuss not only what is true, but something that is becoming worse and therefore more applicable and true with each passing day.
