Rebels against the future : the Luddites and their war on the Industrial Revolution : lessons for the computer age by Kirkpatrick Sale( Book )

26 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 1,296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of a bold uprising by the earliest victims of the first Industrial Revolution, viewed from the perspective of today's second Industrial Revolution, a vivid reminder that the current turmoil, driven by rapidly developing technologies and the global economy, is every bit as disruptive as the one created by the steam engine and laissez-faire. Rebels Against the Future is a work of careful scholarship, but it is also an exciting tale of people whose resistance to technology was so dramatic that their name has entered our vernacular. "Luddite" today refers to anyone unmoved by laptop computers and cellular phones, but this book reminds us that the Luddites were in fact real people, English working men who saw their livelihoods and homes, their communities and countryside, destroyed by the onrush of industrial capitalism

Dwellers in the land : the bioregional vision by Kirkpatrick Sale( Book )

21 editions published between 1985 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Imagine a world structured around ecological and cultural diversity rather than national and political parameters. In response to present and impending ecological and economic crises, Kirkpatrick Sale presents a definitive introduction to the unique concept of bioregionalism, an alternative way of organizing society to create smaller-scaled, more ecologically sound, and individually responsive communities with renewable economies and cultures. Sale emphasizes the concept of regionalism through natural population division, settlement near and stewardship of watershed areas, and the importance of communal ownership of and responsibility for the land. Dwellers in the Land focuses on the realistic development of these bioregionally focused communities and the places where they are established to create a society that is both ecologically sustainable and satisfying to its inhabitants."--BOOK JACKET
Human scale by Kirkpatrick Sale( Book )

"Big government, big business, big everything - how the crises that imperil modern America are the inevitable result of giantism grown out of control - and what can be done about it. Kirkpatrick Sale examines a nation in the grips of growthmania and presents the ways to shape a more efficient and livable society built to the human scale."--Cover
The fire of his genius : Robert Fulton and the American dream by Kirkpatrick Sale( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"None of the well-dressed crowd that gathered on the Hudson River side of Lower Manhattan on the hot afternoon of August 17, 1808, could have known the importance of the object they had come to see and, mostly, deride: Robert Fulton's new steamboat, the North River, the boat that is frequently - and wrongly - remembered as the Clermont. But, as Kirkpatrick Sale shows in this biography of Fulton, the North River's successful four-day round-trip to Albany proved a technology that would transform nineteenth-century America, open up the interior to huge waves of settlers, create and sustain industrial and plantation economies in the nation's heartland, and destroy the remaining Indian civilizations and most of the wild lands on which they depended. The North River's four-day trip introduced the machines and culture that marked the birth of the Industrial Revolution in America. The Fire of His Genius tells the story of the extraordinarily driven and ambitious inventor who brought all this about, probing into the undoubted genius of his mind but, too, laying bare the darker side of the man - and the darker side of the American dream that inspired him."--Jacket

But never in the annals of social change has a movement gained as much popular support, never has it had such legislative and regulatory impact, never has it become so embedded in an entire culture. It may not save the world, but what else will?
After Eden : the evolution of human domination by Kirkpatrick Sale( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In After Eden, Kirkpatrick Sale answers these questions in a radically new way. Integrating research in paleontology, archaeology, and anthropology, he points to the beginning of big-game hunting as the origin of Homo sapiens' estrangement from the natural world. Sale contends that a new, recognizably modern human culture based on the hunting of large animals developed in Africa some 70,000 years ago in response to a fierce plunge in worldwide temperature triggered by an enormous volcanic explosion in Asia. Tracing the migration of populations and the development of hunting thousands of years forward in time, he shows that hunting became increasingly adversarial in relation to the environment as people fought over scarce prey during Europe's glacial period between 35,000 and 10,000 years ago. By the end of that era, humans' idea that they were the superior species on the planet, free to exploit other species toward their own ends, was well established. Sale asserts that vestiges of a more ecologically sound way of life do exist today, offering redemptive possibilities for ourselves and for the planet."--Jacket
