Essays for Standing Stone:
Hughes, J.D., & Swan, J. "How much of the Earth is sacred space?" Environmental Review, 10 (1986) pp. 247-59.
I regret that I could not find an online copy of the essay I described in the podshow, "How much of the Earth is Sacred Space?". Academic journal publishers often lock up their online editions, requiring readers to either pay for a subscription (this can cost hundreds of dollars a year), or else be a registered student or staff member at a college or university. This means that we ordinary people cannot easily see what our taxpayer-funded professional researchers are doing. But the publicly funded academy is only partly to blame here: for the majority of professional academic journals are published and distributed by private corporations, over whom we taxpayers have little or no moral authority. I see this as a problem concerning the privatization of knowledge. If we are asked to pay for the academy with our taxes, then we should be allowed to know more about what the academy does, and we should have better access to the products of academic research.
I did, however, find an online edition of the other essay I mentioned:
White, Lynn (Jr), "The Historical Roots of our Ecological Crisis" (1967)
Rants, Raves & Reviews
Brendan and Juniper wrap up their discussions on good books to read (for a while at least) with a quick list of twenty book suggestions.
The book list will be up in a day or two.
The Wigglian Way is mentioned: http://thewigglianway.ca/
