About the Author:

Kirkpatrick Sale is the author of a dozen books, including After Eden: The Evolution of Human Domination, Rebels Against the Future: The Luddites and Their War on the Industrial Revolution, The Conquest of Paradise: Christopher Columbus and the Columbian Legacy and Dwellers in the Land: The Bioregional Vision. One of the pioneers of the bioregional movement, he was named by Utne Reader as one of 100 living visionaries. He is currently the Director of the Middlebury Institute-a think-tank for the study of separation, secession, and self-determination.

Review:

Size matters. And "progress", as it translates into sprawl, congestion, resource depletion, overpopulation, the decline of communities and the rise of corporate rule, is quite literally killing us. In his landmark work Human Scale, Kirkpatrick Sale details the crises facing modern society and offers real solutions, laying out ways that we can take control of every facet of our lives by building institutions, workplaces and communities that are sustainable, ecologically balanced, and responsive to the needs of the individual. As relevant today as when it was first published in 1980, this remarkable book provides a fascinating perspective on the last quarter-century of "growth" and anticipates by decades the current movement towards relocalization in response to the end of cheap oil.

Human Scale has been made available through New Catalyst Books.
