The One Straw Revolution

By Fukuoka, Masanobu




Masanobu Fukuoka (1913–2008) was born and raised on the Japanese island of Shikoku. He was the oldest son of a rice farmer who was also the local mayor. Fukuoka studied plant pathology and worked for number of years as a produce inspector in the customs office in Yokohama. But in 1938 he returned to his village home determined to put his ideas about natural farming into practice. During World War II, he worked for the Japanese government as a researcher on food production, managing to avoid military service until the final few months of the war. After the war, he returned to Shikoku to devote himself wholeheartedly to farming. And in 1975, distressed by the effects of Japan’s post-war modernization, Fukuoka wrote The One-Straw Revolution. In his later years, Fukuoka was involved with several projects to reduce desertification throughout the world. He remained an active farmer until well into his eighties, and continued to give lectures until only a few years before his death at the age of ninety-five. Fukuoka is also the author of The Natural Way of Farming and The Road Back to Nature. In 1988 he received the Magsaysay Award for Public Service.

Frances Moore Lappé is author or co-author of sixteen books, including Diet for a Small Planet and Getting a Grip: Clarity, Creativity, and Courage in a World Gone Mad. She has co-founded three organizations, including the Institute for Food and Development Policy and, more recently, the Small Planet Institute, which she leads with her daughter Anna Lappé. In 1987, she received the Right Livelihood Award, also called the “Alternative Nobel.” She has received seventeen honorary doctorates and has been a visiting scholar at MIT.

One-Straw Revolution, The: An Introduction to Natural Farming

Masanobu Fukuoka

Appears as unopened, unread & unblemished with fine dark yellow boards in DJ displaying minor surface/edge/wear, as shown, with repaired closed tear.Preface bvy Wendell Berry & Edited by Larry Korn From the dustwrapper: "During the past forty years Masanobu Fukuoka has witnessed with indignation the degeneration of both the land and of Japanese society. In those years the Japanese have followed single-mindedly the American model of economic and industrial development, abandoning their rich heritage of working closely and simply with their land. Mr. Fukuoka, however, was determined not to forsake traditional farming. Instead, he refined it so that his natural farming method requires less labor and less disruption of nature than any other, while maintaining the same yields per acre as his farmer neighbors. In this highly sensitive and thought provoking work, Mr. Fukuoka describes the events that led to the development of his natural farming methods and the impact that it has had on his land, himself, and the thousands of people he has taught. He discusses the method itself and why he believes it offers a practical, steady-state model of how society can live on a foundation of permanence and simplicity. Mr. Fukuoka "understands the interconnections of farming with other aspects of culture, and his book is highly suggestive. He feels that natural farming proceeds from the spiritual health of the individual. He considers the healing of the land and purification of the human spirit to be the same process, and proposes a way of life and a way of farming in which this process can take place. As much as to change methods, this book aims to change attitudes: about nature, farming, food, and human physical and spiritual health. Masanobu Fukuoka received training in microbiology, specializing in plant diseases, and then worked for some years as an agricultural customs inspector. Then, while still a young man of 25, Mr. Fukuoka began to question the fundamental principles of modern farming. He decided to leave his technical career and returned instead to his village home where, over the next 35 years, he worked to develop a unique method of natural farming. Today he has a large following in Japan. He lectures widely, has written many articles and books, and spends much of his time sharing his philosophy and farming techniques with the many visitors who come to his farm overlooking Matsuyama Bay on the island of Shikoku in southern Japan. Larry Korn is an American who lives and farms in the mountains north of Kyoto, Japan. He has studied Chinese history, soil science and plant nutrition at the University of California, and has worked at Mr. Fukuoka's farm for a year and a half. He now grows rice, buckwheat, corn, soybeans and other crops by the natural method. Chris Pearce, who helped with the direct translation, lives in a commune on a remote island in southern Japan. Tsune Kurosawa is a Japanese farmer who worked and studied for more than a year with Mr. Fukuoka." Tan coloured boards with black lettering and kangi on the front in illustrated dustwrapper with a photo of the author on the back. Translated from the Japanese, Preface by Wendell Berry, and edited by Larry Korn. Illustrated with photographs and drawings by Chuck Miller.

Critique of Poetics, 2 Vols

A. R. Biswas

Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd, 2005. Hardcover. New. Poetry and Poetics are integrally related. The former is an art based on emotions, whereas the latter is a science evaluating poetry. So long their common mode of treatment has been to excite in the mind the emotions appropriate to the subject-matter. But science and art are not identical. The former uses the “discursive” mode; and the latter the “presentational” mode. While science is “truth,” the art is adjectively “true”, i.e. it does not conflict with the truth. The book Critique of Poetics is an extremely bold and far reaching attempt at a comprehensive theory of poetry. It starts with a Sound-Sense Continuum and ends with Quantum Poetics. The path of evolution is marked by the poetic process, the flow of Rasa, the flight of Pegasus, the dance of Resonons, the doctrine of suggestion, Rx for rhetoric, the logic of signs and symbols, the poetic imagery, the miracle of communication, the concept of criticism, style and stylistics, the law of inspiration and catharsis, the limits of art, the philosophy of beauty, East and West in Poetics, and the theory of literature. And this has been treated in a global perspective, which harmonizes both East and West in Poetics. A balance has also been struck between the two approaches to the study of literature—Extrinsic and Intrinsic. The former is characterized by psychology-society and other arts whereas the latter by style and stylistics, image and metaphor, rhetoric and suggestion, beauty and the like. A new theory of literature has been derived from these. This is born in a continuum of sound and sense, of space and time. It provides an organ of evaluating the past, present and future works of literature. In this context quantum poetics marks the end of the evolutionary process. Printed Pages: 600.

About Face: The Secrets of Emotionally Effective Advertising

Dan Hill

Kogan Page Limited, 2010. First edition. Hardcover. New. Once advertising was all about being ""on-message"" and getting talking points right. But breakthroughs in brain science have confirmed what we all know but don’t often admit to in business: people are primarily emotional decision makers. From podcasting, blogs and forums to interactive ads in stations, the heart of the matter is now the consumer’s experience, not the company’s marketing message. About Face shows how 21st-century advertising can realize success by being ""on-emotion"". Using data from eyetracking and facial coding to analyse consumer responses, it demonstrates exactly which advertising strategies are successful and why. Moving beyond the old ‘Ps’ of product, place and promotion, Dan Hill outlines the ten rules for emotionally effective advertising, including: • keep it simple • make it relevant • be memorable • focus on faces • always sell hope • don’t lead with price Emotions rule decision making. About Face shows you that by focusing on the three new ‘Ps’ of passion, purpose and personality, your campaigns can become more effective and emotionally engaging, taking you closer to the customer. Contents : Introduction • Get physical • Keep it simple • Keep it close to home • Focus on faces • Make it memorable • Relevancy drives connection • Always sell hope • Don’t lead with price • Mirror the target market’s values • Always sell hope • Don’t lead with price • Mirror the target market’s values • Believability sticks • Summary • Alter word • Notes • Picture credits • Index Printed Pages: 208.

Literary Theory: A Reintroduction

David Ayers

Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd/Blackwell, 2008. Softcover. New. Beginning in the 1920s, the book looks at the impact of the periods preceding the ‘theory movement’ and reintroduces this movement from a contemporary perspective. Engaging the reader in questions about the origin, reception and analysis of literary theory, Ayers explores how and why popular criticisms developed, and consider their futures. Major influences on the development of modern theory are examined, among them the creation of university English and campus politics; the Cold War; the Anglo-Americanization of French and German theory; the culture wars; and the politics of contemporary historicist scholarship. Key figures such as F. R. Leavis, Raymond Williams, Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, Judith Butler and Alain Badiou are also discussed. Printed Pages: 256.

Reconceiving Postcolonialism: Visions and Revisions

Sunita Sinha (Ed.)

Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd, 2009. Hardcover. New. Exploring the postcolonial terrain where ‘dislocation and relocation intertwine, where hope and disillusionment converge, where violence erupts and the human spirit prevails,’ Reconceiving Postcolonialism: Visions and Revisions aims at expanding the canon of Postcolonial Literature. The book draws from the immense wealth of postcolonial writing and provides new perspectives on a wide range of writers as well as on the pertinent issues in the field of postcolonial writing and theory. Analyzing the major paradigms of postcolonial critique, the anthology deals with the emergent issues related to the engagements of postcolonial societies in a ‘glocal’ age. The critical engagement opens up the possibility to reimagine the postcolonial mystique and makes a significant contribution to our understanding of postcolonial theory and its engagement with significant changes within the contemporary world. Equally suitable for students, researchers and teachers of English literature, this collection provides an in-depth introduction to debates within postcolonial theory and criticism.

The Economics and Politics of Resettlement in India

Madhu Bala,Shobhita Jain

Pearson Education/Longman. First edition. Hardcover. New. Many unresolved questions plague the emotive issue of population displacement caused by development projects. A focused analysis of the processes of resettlement and rehabilitation (R&R)—treated as the key issue in most debates over the politics of development and displacement—is of critical importance today. The struggle for all involved in R&R is finding a balance between the imperatives of development and the rights and needs of the displaced. In the face of an increasingly mobile population and the seemingly unstoppable forces of industrial and infrastructural growth across the developing world, the need for a democratically negotiated, professionally managed and overtly ethical R&R policy and practice is being felt all the more. Such a policy can be developed and perfected on the basis of constant inputs from the ground-level experiences of actual implementation. This, however, necessitates a bracketed, multi-disciplinary and balanced research in the field of R&R policy and practice, one that would lead to informed criticism, analyses and theorization related to development-induced population displacement. This volume is a significant contribution in this direction. Edited by two well-known scholars of development-induced involuntary displacement in India, it brings together fourteen well researched and relevant essays by academics, researchers and practitioners with extensive first-hand knowledge and experience of the R&R processes in India. These essays provide valuable empirical and theoretical insights into R&R practices and experiences from a variety of developmental fields, including road projects, dams, mining, forests, and farmlands. Situating the discourse on R&R in the overall debate about the politics of development, this volume attempts not only to establish the study of R&R as a separate field of inquiry, but also to influence policy implementation in this field. With its extensive coverage and detailed analysis of the key fields of inquiry in R&R, this volume will be an indispensable resource for students, researchers and scholars in the field of development studies, refugee studies and policy studies. It will be a useful guide to policy-makers, NGOs and journalists working in the field of development-induced displacement in India. The volume will also be a valuable reference for students and scholars of economics, sociology, demography and political science. Printed Pages: 320.
