Publisher's Summary

Blessed Unrest tells the story of a worldwide movement that is largely unseen by politicians or the media. Hawken, an environmentalist and author, has spent more than a decade researching organizations dedicated to restoring the environment and fostering social justice. From billion-dollar nonprofit organizations to single-person causes, these organizations collectively comprise the largest movement on earth. This is a movement that has no name, leader, or location, but it is in every city, town, and culture. It is organizing from the bottom up and is emerging as an extraordinary and creative expression of people's needs worldwide.

gorgeous, vibrant, relevant

the fact that this book can still feel so enormously urgent 10 years after publishing is a testimony to it's eloquence. absolutely beautiful, inspiring, and terrifyingly essential. I would recommend this to anyone who is interested in social justice, environmentalism, personal responsibility, civil rights, history and movements- it's about all of them and somehow manages to share completely new, refreshing insights and stories in the telling.

thoroughly lays out the fundamental components and stratagies that comprise a mass movement. It was well written with many examples from real world senator and organizations.
