Product description

Review

""For all who seek to integrate theory and practice--knowing that individual action matters tremendously to social justice--this book will offer that much neglected yet essential ingredient to action: thought-provoking inspiration." --Sarah Wider, professor of English and women's studies, Colgate University "

""A clarion call against authoritarianism, "Creating Waldens" inspires us to challenge social evil through courageous acts of nonviolent protest and find joy in harmony with nature and our fellow citizens around the globe." --Anita Patterson, director, American and New England Studies Program, Boston University "

""Following the provocative dialogue in "Creating Waldens" is a powerful way to help us inhabit nature from the inside; a way to help us live within the core wisdom of connectedness and co-creation at the heart of Buddhism and Transcendentalism. From this deep view, we see our own power with new eyes. We can trust nature with new fervor. We become stronger for the challenges of this magnificent time." --Frances Moore Lappe, author, " Getting a Grip: Clarity, Creativity and Courage in a World Gone Mad

""Brilliantly celebrates the continued relevance of Emerson and Thoreau to our lives and times." --Lou Marinoff, author, " The Middle Way: Finding Happiness in a World of Extremes

""Here, boiled down to a number of enlightened conversations between three scholars, is the essence of the thoughts of these two American writers and the uniquely cross-cultural and curiously contemporary blend of thought and philosophy that they embodied." --John Hanson Mitchell, author, " Walking Towards Walden: A Pilgrimage in Search of Place
