The New York Times bestselling examination of the worldwide movement for social and environmental change Paul Hawken has spent more than a decade researching organizations dedicated to restoring the environment and fostering social justice. From billion-dollar nonprofits to single-person causes, these groups collectively comprise the largest movement on earth, a movement that has no name, leader, or location but that is in every city, town, and culture. Though this movement has gone largely ignored by politicians and the media, it is organizing from the bottom up and is emerging as an extraordinary and creative expression of people's unstoppable need to re-imagine their relationship to the environment and to one another. Blessed Unrest explores the diversity of the movement, its brilliant ideas, innovative strategies, and centuries of hidden history. A culmination of Hawken's many years of leadership in the environmental and social justice fields, it will inspire all who despair of the world's fate, and its conclusions will surprise even those within the movement itself.

This book was a terrible disappointment. It had so much potential according to the description. However, it turned out to be a bore. I have read many books on the green movement that are intelligently written and fact-filled that are much more thought-provoking than this wannabe.
