ItÃ¢ÂÂs hard to pigeonhole Thom Hartmann. He has a unique synthesis of qualities not often found in one person: a scholarÃ¢ÂÂs love of history, a scientistÃ¢ÂÂs zeal for facts, a visionaryÃ¢ÂÂs seeking after truth, an explorerÃ¢ÂÂs appetite for adventure and novelty. In addition to being the nationÃ¢ÂÂs number one progressive radio host, heÃ¢ÂÂs been an ad man, a psychotherapist, a private detective, and a homeopath. His writings encompass politics, history, ecology, psychology, and spirituality, among other subjects.
Even HartmannÃ¢ÂÂs millions of loyal listeners and readers will be amazed at the breadth of his thought as evidenced by The Thom Hartmann Reader. Editor Tai Moses has pulled together HartmannÃ¢ÂÂs writings from a dozen books and other sources to present a comprehensive picture of where HartmannÃ¢ÂÂs wide-ranging intellect has led him over the past thirty years.
Hartmann is perhaps best known as a political thinker, and essays throughout this book expressÃ¢ÂÂin his characteristic impassioned and lucid styleÃ¢ÂÂhis fierce commitment to Jeffersonian democracy and his virulent opposition to the corporatization of America. But youÃ¢ÂÂll also discover his Older and Younger Cultures hypothesis, which identifies the root cause of so many of our social and environmental ills and points the way to a solution. YouÃ¢ÂÂll hear from Hartmann on how to keep our schools from treating children like assembly line products, why attention deficit disorder is not an affliction, and what cloudy Germany can teach us about solar energy. YouÃ¢ÂÂll meet the remarkable Gottfried MÃÂ¼ller, HartmannÃ¢ÂÂs mentor and the founder of the humanitarian organization Salem International. YouÃ¢ÂÂll join Hartmann on fact-finding trips to Uganda, Russia, and four-thousand-year-old ruins in Peru.
As fascinating as these and other topics in The Hartmann Reader are, HartmannÃ¢ÂÂs deepest aspiration has always been that his audience do more than just listen or read, that they become active, awakened agents of change. These essays are meant to inspire and motivate, to spur you to take some kind of action. As Hartmann says at the end of every radio program, Ã¢ÂÂGet out there, get active! Tag, youÃ¢ÂÂre it!Ã¢ÂÂ
