The book offers a detailed description of life on the self-organizing, self-governing and self-informing commons, including spiritual practices and traditions

Rich in historical detail, the book uncovers a denigrated piece of history, selectively culls elements that could be usefully revived today and ends with a vision in which some promising current initiatives, such as permaculture and the Occupy Movement, take on a deeper significance.

This is an engaging memoir of personal and political discovery, and maintains its intimate voice throughout

Part I is pure memoir in its intimate account of the author unearthing a lost heritage around the commons and the real tragedy of its loss

Part II identifies key commons practices that could be usefully revived today, and the capacity building that this would require

A final ‘manifesto’ section pulls these together into a vision for reclaiming the commons, making reference to a number of initiatives going on now, including in local food security, permaculture and the Occupy Movement, that are already re-inventing the commons and reviving its ethos of mutual respect and empathy.

This book is different from other titles with regard to the historical perspective Menzies brings to the contemporary discussion about alternatives and bringing them into being.
