Reviews

A remarkable study of how people get caught up in forces that lead to genocide and ecocide. Gottlieb's intensity of resolution, coupled with forceful argument speaking the truth to power, is all too rare today, and urgently needed.
Praise for the hardcover edition: If you agree we have a global problem on our hands and you want to join the spiritual seeker and the political activist in yourself, this is the book for you.....
A true spiritual guide for our day.
An important and possibly a landmark book.
A brilliant and important challenge.
Praise for the hardcover edition: Provides a bold new challenge for those who are serious about cultivating the spiritual dimension of life. In eloquent prose, Gottlieb demonstrates a mastery of both the pitfalls and possibilities for spiritual development in the face of the environmental crisis.
Praise for the hardcover edition: If you agree we have a global problem on our hands and you want to join the spiritual seeker and the political activist in yourself, this is the book for you.
Will touch the reader's heart and move it to moral commitment.
Roger Gottlieb has written an incredibly powerful book that reconciles the seemingly incompatible realms of politics and spirituality. Written with great lucidity and admirable intellectual honesty, this book is essential reading for those of us disillusioned by the sordid events surrounding the 2000 selection of a President. Among other things, Gottlieb shows us how honest anger is a powerful spiritual asset, something which enables us to steer a course between violent rage and impotent resignation when confronted with outrageous injustice. Both religious leaders and political activists could learn a great deal from this magnificent work. A fine mix of anecdotes and statistics, science and faith, I recommend this book to anyone regardless of their stance along the political spectrum.
