5 in stock
The New York Times best-selling examination of the worldwide movement for social and environmental change
Paul Hawken has spent more than a decade researching organisations dedicated to restoring the environment and fostering social justice. From billion-dollar nonprofit organisations to single-person dot.causes, these groups collectively comprise the largest movement on earth, a movement that has no name, leader or location and that has gone largely ignored by politicians and the media.
BLESSED UNREST explores the diversity of the movement, its brilliant ideas, innovative strategies and centuries of hidden history. A culmination of Hawken’s many years of leadership in the environmental and social justice fields, it will inspire all who despair of the world’s fate and its conclusions will surprise even those within the movement itself.
