Pierre Rabhi, born in Algeria, is a French farmer, writer and philosopher. His book, The Power of Restraint, proposes a way of life that more fully respects both humankind and nature. He works to promote agroecology throughout the world, particularly in Africa, fostering autonomy, food safety and security for local communities. He has created many associations, including Colibris and Terre & Humanisme, with the goal of reconnecting people to nature, and personally embodies his philosophical ideals to inspire more and more people to examine their own lives.
BookSavvy had the privilege of working with Pierre through French publisher Actes Sud.
