About this book

Civil society, communitarianism, new social movements, NGOs - these are the watchwords of an age in which unprecedented numbers of people have joined organizations and involved themselves in social action. Yet many of us are pessimistic when confronted by the powerful forces of huge faceless corporations and the governments that serve them, about our ability to change anything. This book is for all those - community workers, development workers, social activists of every kind - who want to overcome pessimism and play a part in changing society in the direction of peace, justice and dignity. It elaborates a framework for a renewal of human action and learning, explains why progressive social organization is possible and identifies some of the principles which can promote it.

Contents

Part 3 The open conspiracy: the open conspiracy - allies for health and action; theatres and strategies - embracing the future; education and the open conspiracy. Conclusion. Epilogue: eclectic notes on knowledge and action.
