RECLAIMING THE COMMONS

Presented by the Canada Council for the Arts
"Menzies allies herself with other critics of the disintegrating social fabric: Hannah Arendt on democracy, Rachel Carson on the environment, Jane Jacobs on the city, and Naomi Klein on corporations... In many ways, the book is a polemic, an articulate one that everyone needs to hear
— New Brunswick Reader
Heather Menzies
