I’ve busy in recent weeks promoting my new book, Think Like a Commoner: A Short Introduction to the Life of the Commons. I’ve been getting some great responses from a variety of media outlets, interview shows, public events and readers both in the US and abroad. (There are French and Polish editions, and other translations are currently being explored.)
Since the focus of the book and my public outreach is to introduce the commons paradigm, long-time readers of this blog will probably be familiar with the substance of my various efforts to publicize Think Like a Commoner. For the curious, here's some recent interviews, book excerpts, reviews and public talks:
Huffington Post, “The Commons as a Rising Alternative to State and Market” (April 14).
Shareable magazine, “New Book Inspires Us to Think Like a Commoner,” interview with Jessica Conrad (April 2).
STIR magazine review (UK), by Danijela Dolonec (Spring 2014 issue).
