`A book that gives voice to the unsuing heroes of the worldwide strugle for social justice... and which the huge reservoir of creativity that resides in contemporary social movements' -
John Clammer, Professor of Comparative Culture, Sophia University, Tokyo
This unusual book is about a more humane world in the making. It describes the visions, experiments, struggles and aspirations of several social movements and voluntary organizations from India and other parts of the world which are striving to realize new modes of human development in various fields—education, religion, human rights, tribal development and community development. The author shows how these movements and organizations touch on many key contemporary issues—self-development, reconstitution of public space and reconstruction of government.
The book is structured as a series of dialogues where the participants critique their lives, as also their organizations or movements. The objective of putting together these dialogues is to facilitate a learning process between scholars and activists and across movements and organizations.
