In the Absence of the Sacred: The Failure of Technology and the Survival of the Indian Nations
In the Absence of the Sacred The Failure of Technology and the Survival of the Indian Nations Author:Jerry Mander Inspiring, sometimes gripping, Jerry Mander's elegant prose reminds us that re-attunement with nature's laws is not self-sacrificing atonement. It is the rediscovery of more soul-satisfying ways of living. Through Mander's eyes, native people are not quaint relics; they become sources of precisely the practical wisdom our species needs not only ... more »for survival but for renewal. Mander's insights help us gain confidence to declare liberation from the technological imperative.
This brilliantly argued book is in equal parts daring and subtle; radical and yet conserving of deeper, lost values. You may not agree with all of Jerry Mander's assertions, but after reading this book you will realize that the survival of humanity will largely depend on whether we take heed of his thesis.« less
