Item description for Flee to the Fields: The Founding Fathers of the Catholic Land Movement by Ihs Press & Tobias Lanz...

Back in print after 68 years, this anthology of essays is a classic survey of the Catholic reaction to problems created by the industrial revolution and socialism and is a unique milestone in the history of social thought. Reacting to the Depression and the seeming inadequacies of capitalism and socialism, these thinkers contributed landmark essays on the topics of property, craftsmanship, industrialism, and more. With an introduction by Hilaire Belloc, this volume contains a coherent representation of one of the principal schools of thought applying Christian theory to the socioeconomic problems of early- to mid-20th-century Europe. This work will be of interest to anyone concerned with the history of social thought.

Reviews - What do customers think about Flee to the Fields: The Founding Fathers of the Catholic Land Movement?

Theology of Homesteading  May 8, 2007
I, as an Independent Sacramental priest, have been for years looking for a theology that would promote getting back to the land and getting rid of industrialism without turning into New Age non-sense or becoming radical and xenophobic. I have worked hard to develop my concept in this, but "Flee to the Land" has given me a wonderful articulation of this theology, which arises from the Catholic Land Movement of early 20th Century Britain and Scotland.

The names of the authors are all the chief members of the Catholic Land Movement and the Distributism school of thought: Hilaire Belloc, Fr. Vincent McNabb, Harold Robbins, et al. They present the ideals of the Catholic Land Movement from the diagnosis of the problem and its causes, the steps to overcoming it on through various stages until the ideal is presented in a fashion that appears very workable.

The best part about this book is that 73 years after it was first published, there is little about it (aside from a few specific historical references) that is not still very timely. If anything, the premise and thesis of this work has only grown more true and more important.

I would recommend this book to any Christian who wanted a theological or a specifically Christian philosophical basis for a back to the land movement that is based in reality and doesn't overlook the potential problems in achieving the goal.

I am planning to implement a more ecumenical version of the plan herein described in the relatively near future and hope that others will, too. I think the inspiration for those who would like to see this is present in this book and should be looked to for a road map that can be used almost anywhere toward this end.

Anyone who loves Dorothy Day or the Catholic Worker Movement, the Distributivist Movement and related themes will love this book.
