Terracotta Reader: A Market Approach to the Environment

Front Cover
Parth Shah, Vidisha Maitra
Academic Foundation, 2005 - 495 pages
Providing a counterpoint to the green movement, which depends upon greater government involvement in environmental issues, this selection of essays represents the philosophy of the terra-cotta movement. Literally named for materials made out of burnt earth, the terra-cotta movement values an aesthetic, contemplative, and spiritual relationship between natural resources and humankind, in contrast to the green movement's claims that the environment needs protection from our extractive and consumptive nature. The terra-cotta movement offers a fresh, liberal perspective that aims to manage and enhance current environmental usage by restructuring civil incentives.
