Media reviews
In reexamining the political and historical implications of the labels 'conservative' and 'liberal, ' Bowers situates the reader in concerns for community that are serious alternatives to the current community-diminishing, nature-depleting, and commodity-aggrandizing visions of global capital.--John A. Grim
