Starting from the premise that "all social institutions will bend now in the direction of ecology—or become dated, dysfunctional, or as Hegel might put it, 'historically surpassed,'" Hayes-Conroy (a graduate student in geography at the U. of Hawaii) uses her home of Burlington County, New Jersey and surrounding areas as window into how the application of ecological thought will play out in local social institutions. She presents four essays analyzing farmers of the New Jersey Pine Barrens Reserve acting as agricultural stewards; the relationship between agricultural markets, suburbanization, and other forms of landscape change; the relationship between landscape change and residents' identification with the built environment; and aspects of regional identity, agriculture, and community as seen in light of festival and ritual promoting seasonal awareness.
