This outstanding selection of articles from Resurgence magazine commemorates the publication of the journal’s 200th edition, and twenty-five years of the editorship of Satish Kumar and June Mitchell. What is Resurgence? As the list of writers shows, it is a magazine of many ideas and insights which are helping to shape the coming age of ecology—an age which will bring together soil, soul and society. Among its themes are the fundamental destructiveness of the global economy; the need for ‘economics as if people mattered’; the importance of human scale, spirituality, rurality, non-violence, and the Third World. Resurgence acknowledges the wisdom of beauty, the value of practical example and the importance of the whole, a holistic view of life. ‘Only connect,’ wrote E.M. Forster—it might preface every edition. Contributors include Wendell Berry, Lester Brown, Fritjof Capra, Noam Chomsky, Herman Daly, Larry Dossey, Matthew Fox, Vaclav Havel, Paul Hawken, James Hillman, Ted Hughes, Wes Jackson, David Korten, James Lovelock, Wangari Maathai, Gita Mehta, Neil Postman, Kathleen Raine, Theodore Roszak, Vandana Shiva and Sting.
