Regaining the Paradise Lost. Fukuoka's most readable work: a narrative of his journeys to North America, Africa and Europe, richly embellished with elaborations of the "One-Straw" philosophy. In a concluding statement, he makes these points; "1. Let us return to a nature ruled over by god: 2. Let us halt science's wild rampage: 3. We must hurry to establish a human charter for the twenty-first century: 4. We must stop the desertification of the earth".
