Listening to the Land: Conversations about Nature, Culture and Eros Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this far-ranging and heartening collection, Derrick Jensen gathers conversations with environmentalists, theologians, Native Americans, psychologists, and feminists, engaging some of our best minds in an exploration of more peaceful ways to live on Earth. Included here is Dave Foreman on biodiversity, Matthew Fox on Christianity and nature, Jerry Mander on technology, and Terry Tempest Williams on an erotic connection to the land. With intelligence and compassion, Listening to the Land moves from a look at the condition of the environment and the health of our spirit to a beautiful evocation of eros and a life based on love.

Book News Annotation:

Declaring American culture "the most destructive culture ever to exist," this work presents 29 interviews with a range of activists, theologians, psychologists, and other thinkers who trace a range of themes of related to the relationship between culture and environmental destruction. Among the figures interviewed are Earth First! cofounder Dave Foreman, historian of religion Thomas Berry, technology critic Jerry Mander, Chickasaw poet and novelist Linda Hogan, psychologist Robert Jay Lifton, Native American scholar and activist Ward Churchill, and feminist and peace activists Starhawk.
