The essays in this book are about social or cultural transformation. They suggest a different way of looking at some aspect of our lives, an alternative agriculture or economic system, a different way of viewing the world or our relationships with each other.
Each is a separate essay, written at a different time over a period of about 5 years. However they have a similar format and share common themes. There are patterns throughout the essays that link them together and suggest a wider commonality from an underpinning worldview.
