Publisher Comments:

Citizenship papers, n 1. Materials prepared for presentation to authorities when making an application for citizenship. 2. Documents presented as proof of citizenship.

There are those in America today who seem to feel we must audition for our citizenship, with "Patriot" offered as the badge for those found narrowly worthy. Let this book stand as Wendell Berrys application, for he is one of those faithful, devoted critics envisioned by the Founding Fathers to be the lifes blood and very future of the nation they imagined. Adams, Jefferson and Madison would have found great clarity in his prose and great hope in his vision. And todays readers will be moved and encouraged by his anger and his refusal to surrender in the face of desperate odds. Books get written for all sorts of reasons, and this book was written out of necessity.

Citizenship Papers collects nineteen new essays, from celebrations of exemplary lives to critiques of American life, including "A Citizens Response [to the new National Security Strategy]"—a ringing call of caution to a nation standing on the brink of global catastrophe.

Synopsis:

Nineteen essays by the author of "The Unsettling of America" are a ringing call of alarm to a nation standing on the brink of global catastrophe.
