Sustainability and Agrarian Ideals

(p.xii) (p.1) Introduction
The Agrarian Vision

Paul B. Thompson

University Press of Kentucky

The new republic was straining to recover from debts incurred while opposing the British in the Revolutionary War. Jefferson would not have used the word sustainability to describe his challenge. The urge to live sustainably is fast becoming a theme for contemporary politics and environmentalism, and it is easy to forget how recently sustainability entered our vocabulary and our mind-set. Sustainability today has become a byword for many people who have never heard of the Brundtland Report. In the first decade of the twenty-first century, spin-off conversations about sustainable cities, sustainable growth, sustainable energy policies, and even sustainable architecture began.

Keywords:   Revolutionary War, sustainability, environmentalism, byword, architecture
