Brewster describes his just published book, Journey of an Unrepentant Socialist, as his "political theological autobiography". It mixes personal anecdotes and insights with a record of the New Left and the peace and social justice movements of the 1960s and '70s, in which he was very involved, and reflections on the current state of the world. The years he spent farming, and his encounter with Indigenous thinking are among the challenges he experienced in this journey. Altogether, Journey of an Unrepentant Socialist is a fascinating and accessible tale which will interest anyone who wonders "How did we get to where we are now?".
$20 (plus postage outside of Canada), Journey of an Unrepentant Socialist can be ordered on-line or from

THANKSGIVING GRACEThe earth is resilient. It is complex beyond our imagining.
Our hands dig into the soil. It is porous, crumbly, full of life, sticky and wiggly.
It grows without us, despite us, around us.
The sheep call for new pasture, the corn calls for compost. The hawks call for gophers.
We stand there, trying to see the patterns, trying to fit within them
As our hands open to the earth, food flows out.
For the earth’s diversity, we are grateful.
For the skilled hands that bring us food, we are grateful
We commit ourselves in this moment to move from exploiters to protectors.
We will protect our soil, our water, our air.
We will protect wildlife, microbes, and farmland
We will support and protect all that which gives us life.
Read the paper Brewster prepared for Yale's Agrarian Studies colloquium on September 13, 2013. He was asked to write about "his work" which prompted this interesting retrospective, entitled Disconnecting the Dots.
Two years ago, at the invitation of a friend in Japan, Brewster wrote a paper, The TransPacific Partnership – Of States and Corporations. As we hurtle into new trade agreements, his comments are (unfortunately) still relevant.
