The Open Space of Democracy

The Open Space of Democracy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Terry Tempest Williams, in a triptych of essays originally published in Orion magazine, presents a sharp-edged perspective on the ethics and politics of place, spiritual democracy, and the responsibilities of citizen engagement. By turn elegiac, inspiring, and passionate, The Open Space of Democracy offers a fresh perspective on the critical questions of our time.

Review:

"In a time of despair Terry Tempest Williams offers us hope. In a season of confrontation she provides connection. Against the passions of war she wields peace. To the bray of hubris she speaks quietly of reflection. And all, each magical phrase of it, is rooted in the land she loves." Carl Pope, Executive Director, The Sierra Club

Review:

"In The Open Space of Democracy, Terry Tempest Williams issues an urgently needed call for the cultivation of a democratic way of life in America that integrates ecological, social, and spiritual values." Steven C. Rockefeller, Professor Emeritus of Religion, Middlebury College

About the Author
