Healing The Heart Of Democracy
The Courage To Create A Politics Worthy Of The Human Spirit
BY PARKER PALMER
Friend Parker Palmer builds on his own extensive experience to examine the personal and social infrastructure of American politics. What he did for educators in The Courage to Teach he does here for citizens by looking at the dynamics of our inner lives for clues to reclaiming our civic well-being. He points the way to a politics rooted in the commonwealth of compassion and creativity still found among "We the People." He proposes practical and hopeful methods to hold the tensions of our differences in a manner that can help us restore a government "of the people, by the people, for the people."
