industrial designer and somehow found yourself in a CAD management position. You
may be struggling with dual questions: “How did I get here?” and “What do I do now?”

CAD manager’s chair.

This book focuses on the growing problems of governance in the
United States and on potential means of alleviating them. The prob-
lems are familiar: more single-issue politics and gridlock in Congress,

government since the 1960s. Relatively few Americans, however, have
appreciated the potential of community-based initiatives to help re-
solve some problems of governance.

During the past two centuries, scientists, farmers, and agricultural educators have tended to alternate
their views of soil organic matter (SOM) between the extremes of great appreciation and low
esteem. As an early 20th century bulletin explained, organic matter was “once extolled as the
essential soil ingredient, the bright particular star in the firmament of the plant grower…” before
it “…fell like Lucifer…” as a result of the findings of 19th century agricultural chemists that most
