Cry, the Beloved
Welcome, Gentle Friends, to the Extra Juicy
Electronic Unit on
Cry, the Beloved Country.
More than anything else we have
read so far, this novel is relevant to our political past and our future--for it addresses
the question of how peoples of different races may live in harmony with each other. It
also begs the question of whether humanity can live in harmony with nature: the
populationn explosion and its concurrent urbanization carry high ecological price tags.
