Soil and Soul: People Versus Corporate Power
In this rousing book, Scottish writer and campaigner Alastair McIntosh shows how it is still possibe for ordinary people to take on powerful individuals or mighty corporations and emerge victorious. As a founder of the residents of the Isle of Eigg Trust, McIntosh helped the beleaguered residents of Eigg to become the first Scottish community ever to clear their laird from his own estate. And plans to turn a majestic Hebridean mountain into a superquarry were overturned after McIntosh persuaded a Native American warrior chief to visit the Isle of Harris and testify at the government inquiry. This extraordinary story weaves together theology, mythology, economics, ecology, history, poetics and politics as the author journeys towards a radical new philosophy of community, spirit and place. 'This is a world-changing book; an adventure in theology, economics, ecology, history and politics which seeks to guide us towards a new means of defeating the powerful. One day it'll be recognised as a classic.' George Monbiot.
