Publishers web page blurb:
The earth is in great peril, due to the corporatization of agriculture, the rising climate crisis, and the ever-increasing levels of global poverty, starvation, and desertification on a massive scale. This present condition of global trauma is not “natural,” however, but a result of humanity’s destructive actions. And, according to Masanobu Fukuoka, it is reversible. We need to change not only our methods of earth stewardship, but also the very way we think about the relationship between human beings and nature."
I've made and had brief contact with Larry Korn about it in the last few of days, since the published added more info about it to their web page (BTW some lesser info has on been there for several months).
With Larry Korn i said he should be second author, not merely editor, and he wrote in reply he has added much his his own material to the book, to, in my words, make the late master Fukuoka, Masanobu's oriental natural philosophy as well understood as possible to the 'western' English-language readers (intended audience). Larry Korn wrote that the book is from a book (?) late master Fukuoka, Masanobu wrote in the mid 1990s but did not get published in English. Which mid 1990s book which late master Fukuoka, Masanobu wrote i don't know which one is the name of it, but i asked Larry Korn to tell me the Japanese original book's title. The family asked Larry Korn a year ago to find an English publisher for it, which is what Chelsea Green Publishing is—Larry said they are a perfect fit. And, so on more discussed by him & i in brief email.

Wishing all the biggest best true nature! (my deliberately creative use of words),
