Looking across three centuries of want and prosperity, war and peace, this work introduces a cast of practitioners and proponents of the simple life, among them Thomas Jefferson, Scott and Helen Nearing, Jimmy Carter and Jane Addams. It finds that nothing is simple about our mercurial devotion to the ideal of plain living and high thinking. Though we may hedge a bit in practice and are now and then driven by motives no deeper than nostalgia, this work stresses that the diverse efforts to avoid anxious social striving and compulsive materialism have been essential to the nation's spiritual health.

“A manifesto for the only kind of future that promises sanity and the possibility of contentment. Bread and wine for the spirit.” —Sam Keen, author of Fire in the Belly Originally published in 1981 and hailed as the “bible” of the simplicity movement by The Wall Street Journal, Duane Elgin’s classic Voluntary Simplicity has been completely revised for our modern times. Elgin, who was honored in 2009 by The Ecologist, the U.K.’s leading environmental magazine, as one of ten important “visionaries,” offers a path “Toward a Way of Life That is Outwardly Simple, Inwardly Rich.” Voluntary Simplicity has already changed the lives of thousands of people. This new edition will profoundly influence countless more with its powerful, timely message of balance, frugality, and ecological awareness.

In this multi-award-winning, bestselling novel, Margaret Atwood has created a stunning Orwellian vision of the near future. This is the story of Offred, one of the unfortunate “Handmaids” under the new social order who have only one purpose: to breed. In Gilead, where women are prohibited from holding jobs, reading, and forming friendships, Offred’s persistent memories of life in the “time before” and her will to survive are acts of rebellion. Provocative, startling, prophetic, and with Margaret Atwood’s devastating irony, wit, and acute perceptive powers in full force, The Handmaid’s Tale is at once a mordant satire and a dire warning.
