Al Etmanski is one of North America's best social inventors. He has looked beyond traditional institituions and their failures to create new means of achieving a better life. His analysis of the forms of organization that enable local communities while avoiding rigid hierarchies is groundbreaking.
His book A Good Life is a wonderful and practical guide to the potential for neighbors to grow strong through the power of hospitality. http://www.aletmanski.com/
