By Wendell Berry
"Thoughts in the Presence of Fear"
"The Idea of a Local Economy"
"In Distrust of Movements"
In these three poignant essays, prolific author Wendell Berry reflects deeply on the current sources of world hope and despair. Berry's powerful "Thoughts in the Presence of Fear," written in response to the September 11 attacks, originally appeared on Orion's website, and has since been reprinted in 73 countries and seven languages. Orion has now made it available in print form, along with two related essays by Berry previously published in Orion magazine. Together, they provide a much-needed road map to a full cultural recovery.
