Blessed Unrest: How the Largest Social Movement in the World is Restoring Grace, Justice & Beauty...

by Paul Hawken
£10.99   paperback  Penguin Books Ltd (2008)

Blessed Unrest: How the Largest Social Movement in the World is Restoring Grace, Justice & Beauty... by Paul Hawken Across the planet groups ranging from neighborhood associations to well-funded international organizations are confronting issues like the destruction of the environment, the abuses of free-market fundamentalism, social justice, and the loss of indigenous cultures. Though these groups share no unifying ideology or charismatic leader and are mostly unrecognized by politicians and the media, they are bringing about a profound transformation of human society.
 
In this stirring books, world-renowned environmentalist Paul Hawken tells the story of what is going right in this world. Blessed Unrest is the account of how people - from students in Australia to farmers in France, from shoemakers to zoologists and poets - use imagination, conviction and resilience to redefine our relationship to the environment and to one another, healing the wounds of the earth with passion and determination. Blessed Unrest also features a guide to the project areas being pursued by the environmental and social justice movements - an invaluable resource and inspiration.
