Durable Trades : Family-Centered Economies That Have Stood the Test of Time
by Rory Groves and Allan C. C. Carlson




Overview -

With over thirty thousand occupations currently in existence, workers today face a bewildering array of careers from which to choose, and upon which to center their lives. But there is more at stake than just a paycheck.


For too long, work has driven a wedge between families, dividing husband from wife, father from son, mother from daughter, and family from home. Building something that will last requires a radically different approach than is common or encouraged today.


In Durable Trades, Groves uncovers family-centered professions that have endured the worst upheavals in history-including the Industrial Revolution-and continue to thrive today. Through careful research and thoughtful commentary, Groves offers another way forward to those looking for a more durable future.
