Nie-fiksie / Non-fiction - Biography & Autobiography / Biografie & Outobiografie
• This book is about the shaping of a different world. Not the grand sweeping shift of idealists or the disruptive change of radicals, but the deep and incremental breakthroughs of ordinary people.
• The story is about something much bigger than being a person with a state and a flag, religious identity or a culture participating in a particular cause. One by one the individual interviews connect the private and the public, the particular and the general, the paradigmatic and the practical, the micro and the meta. The point of departure of the 21 South African and Israeli activists is not a national state, but the moral state between people and the Palestinian struggle serves as a special, focused lens for global issues.
• This inspiring and well-researched book in plain language will appeal as much to newcomers to the topic as to seasoned scholars, activists and anyone interested in the kind of moral leadership that does not simply fix problems but shapes a better world. It is a must-have in a time when a crumbling world yearns for collective sanity
