Hoe god verdween uit jorwerd
Hoe God verdween uit Jorwerd: een Nederlands dorp in de twintigste eeuw by Geert MakHoe God verdween uit Jorwerd is de biografie van een dorp tijdens de stille revolutie tussen 1945 en 1995. Het is het verhaal van de boeren en het geld, van de kleine winkeliers en de oprukkende stad, van de kerktoren die instortte en de import die niet meer groette. Het is het verhaal van de cafehoudster die verder wilde, van de mooie Gais Meinsma, van Fedde met zijn acht koeien en een land vol modder, van de kruidenier en zijn heimwee, en van Peer, die stierf in de boerenkool. Het is het verhaal van de jaren waarin alles anders werd. Wat gebeurde er op het platteland toen de machines kwamen, de subsidies en de banken, en toen de echte boeren langzaam ten onder gingen?

Nowhere has the modern era encroached more dramatically than in the countryside. Progress and prosperity have done more change to the closed village communities in the last fifty years than in all the previous centuries. Thanks to the influence of the cities, the mechanisation of farming, and the arrival of automobiles, television and supermarkets, age-old traditions and ways of life have disappeared almost completely within the space of two generations. Geert Mak has produced an impressive account of this silent Europe-wide revolution in the countryside. Mak moved to this small village in the north of the Netherlands to find out what had happened to village life. In a gripping narrative, he describes the changes in the lives of the farmers, shopkeepers and tradesmen. Arable farming started disappearing; dependence on the land and the weather changed to a reliance on machines, subsidies and bankers.
