Open Spaces

Voices from the Northwest

University of Washington Press

Since its beginnings, Open Spaces has been on the cutting edge of thinking about the Pacific Northwest – an intelligent, provocative, beautifully conceived magazine for thoughtful readers who are searching for new ways to understand the region, themselves, and many of the major issues of our time.

Whether the challenge is integration with the natural world, the relationship of science and policy, learning to use what we know, or simply enjoying a balanced and fulfilling life, The Pacific Northwest is known for its innovative solutions. The writers in this updated volume – leaders in their respective disciplines – apply their expertise and talent to provide an intelligent and informed context through which to see public issues and make sense of the changes that continue to shape the region and our world. Individually, they touch on our deepest sense of human experience and continuity and reflect the spirit of the Northwest. Open Spaces enlightens, challenges, and inspires. It is a book to inhale and savour.
