"This bracingly pragmatic and unerringly spiritual volume reaf-firms Snyder's prominent place in American literature and discourse". Booklist"A Place in Space, like a visit to an old forest, offers a refreshingly clear perspective on our relationship to the natural community -- and the larger human community as well". Seattle TimesThis collection features twenty-nine essays written over the past forty years. Displaying Snyder's playful and subtle intellect, these pieces challenge commonly held attitudes toward the environment and local communities, and call for action to give moral standing to all beings.
This richly rewarding book about ecology and technology draws on 40 years of careful thought. Although it does not dwell on information technologies, the points Snyder makes about "a feeling of place" are of interest to anyone who has mulled over the ways in which cyberspace jogs our normative notions of time, space, and community.
