The courage of a book, it has been said, is that it looks away from nothing. Here is a brave book. The Charlotte Observer

Berry says that these recent essays mostly say again what he has said before. His faithful readers may think he hasn't, however, said any of it better before. Booklist(starred review)

His refusal to abandon the local for the global, to sacrifice neighborliness, community integrity, and economic diversity for access to Wal-Mart, has never seemed more appealing, nor his questions of personal accountability more powerful. Kirkus Reviews


There are those in America today who seem to feel we must audition for our citizenship, with patriot offered as the badge for those found narrowly worthy. Let this book stand as Wendell Berry's application, for he is one of those faithful, devoted critics envisioned by the Founding Fathers to be the life's blood and very future of the nation they imagined.Citizenship Paperscollects nineteen new essays, from celebrations of exemplary lives to critiques of American life, including A Citizen's Response [to the new National Security Strategy] a ringing call of caution to a nation standing on the brink of global catastrophe.

Wendell Berryis the author of more than fifty books of poetry, fiction, and essays. He was recently awarded the National Humanities Medal, the Cleanth Brooks Medal for Lifetime Achievement by the Fellowship of Southern Writers, and the Louis Bromfield Society Award. For more than forty years he has lived and farmed with his wife, Tanya, in Kentucky.
