- Scott Nearing: An Intellectual Biography
A moving biography tracing Scott Nearing’s struggle with the tensions of living a principled life, connecting the personal with the political.
- The Great Madness
From this basis Scott Nearing begins his scathing analysis of how the business class, represented by J.P. Morgan and company, gained control of the inner workings of the United States government and were thus able to meld nationalist patriotism into a military preparedness which finally leads to an open declaration of war.
- Free Radical: Rethinking the Good Death of Scott Nearing
For reasons LaConte makes clear, Helen did not tell the whole story about Scott’s dignified death at home. This candid look at the way fame and public life put pressure to be perfect on those who wish to live honorably, is also an enlightening assessment of what makes death good, and a moving story about Truth, Beauty, Goodness,–and Love.
- Oil and the Germs of War
Scott wrote Oil and the Germs of War in 1923, just a few years after the First World War. Petroleum fuels had played a significant role in warfare for the first time, with the U.S. using a wide variety of gasoline-driven war machines against (and alongside) the largely coal-fired trains and ships of old Europe.
