You name it: If it’s radical and leading edge, Sale probably wrote about it sooner and better than anyone else. SDS, neoconservatism, human scale, bioregionalism, sun belt, and neo-Luddism are all terms that Sale helped to seed and take root. His books include Human Scale, Dwellers in the Land, The Conquest of Paradise: Christopher Columbus and the Columbian Legacy, and Rebels Against the Future: The Luddites and Their War on the Industrial Revolution, to be published this spring.
