The Sibling Society: The Culture of Half-adults, Bly, Robert
1 Bly, Robert The Sibling Society: The Culture of Half-adults
UK. Hamish Hamilton Ltd 1996 0241137217 / 9780241137215 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good Good Book 8vo - over 7 - 9 
In the Sibling Society, Robert Bly turns to stories as unexpected as Jack and the Beanstalk and the Hindu tale of Ganesha to illustrate and illuminate the troubled soul of western society itself. What he shows us is a culture where adults remain children, and where children have no desire to become adults - a society of squabbling sibblings. This book will capture the imaginations of its readers and enliven our cultural debate. The DW shows signs of wear on the edges and corners and the page edges shows light foxing. There are stamp marks on the bottom of the pages which denote it was originally a remainder book.

The Vale of Evesham in the depths of rural England between the wars, and Fred archer's small world, was somewhere the ploughman sang in the fields as he followed his horses, the raggle-taggle travellers camped in the fields every summer to pick the peas, and on saturday the blacksmith strode out to the wicket in his belt and braces to knock the next village's bowlers all over the pitch. Fred Archer's vivid recollections combine with contemporary photographs and colour paintings to create a highly nostalgic and evocative book that will be of lasting interest to all who love English rural life.
