TWO BOOKS ON POLITICS OF BACK TO THE LAND
Belloc, G. K. Chesterton and the Ditching arts and crafts community developed a political ideology in the 1920s. It was male-dominated, melancholic and atavistic, but it has had widespread power and influence.Distributism is largely forgotten, but it was widely understood in its day, when it bundled up a spiritual approach to life and work, small-scale land ownership and back-to-the-land.
David Boyle’s lively introduction looks back at the story of the Distributists, and the back-to-the-land tradition they sprang from – and takes the tale on to see if it might be reinvented today, when the rise of allotments and the renewed power of women in back-to-the-land makes Distributist thinking potentially relevant again. Also available as part of this package is Arthur Penty’s 1937 Distributism: A Manifesto. You can save over £3 by buying them together!
