The Preservation of Place: Regionalism and Ecological Conservation

"We seek the balance between cosmopolitan pluralism and deep local consciousness. We are asking how the whole human race can regain self-determination in place after centuries of having been disenfranchised by hierarchy and/or centralized power" (Gary Snyder, "The Place, the Region, and the Commons").

"And so I look upon the sort of regionalism that I am talking about not just as a recurrent literary phenomenon, but as a necessity of civilization and survival" (Wendell Berry, "The Regional Motive").

But we would not leave it to them to answer.
