Terry Tempest Williams looks at the state of our democracy and its centrality in restoring our Earth. She wrestles with the question: "What are you willing to die for?" She weaves stories of personal loss and triumph that illuminate the idea that, perhaps, in the end, democracy is about listenin--deeply, openly, even with a broken heart. Because, she says, the heart is the first home of democracy. Paul Hawken discusses a new superpower made up of millions of people concerned with a broad agenda that includes social development, environmentalism, health and human rights.

Patriotism and the American land : essays by Richard K Nelson ( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 112 libraries worldwide
Terrorism. Homeland Security. Patriotism. Since September 11, 2001, these terms have emerged as a fundamental part of our cultural lexicon, with their unspoken assumptions and attendant emotions being used to inspire and buttress a set of cultural, political, and military responses to the events of that tragic day. In the months since that moment, most Americans have been immersed in a process of reflection and an ongoing review of the words and actions of our leaders, our media, and our fellow citizens. In different contexts we have been moved to ask the following questions. What is terrorism? What does a secure homeland really look like? Who is a patriot? The three essays in Patriotism and the American Land attempt to address these questions.
