The Gandhian Iceberg presents a bold, new interpretation of Gandhian nonviolence from the rare perspective of an author who is equal parts writer, scholar, and frontlines practitioner. The book faces the current crisis of climate change and the intensification of social unrest around the world, and calls for a new convergence of serious, spiritually-rooted US nonviolence activists prepared to offer themselves in service to a social change movement unlike any seen before. The book approaches radical social transformation and its realistic requirements, with a blend of solid research, moving personal testimony, and compelling vision. The Gandhian Iceberg is written from the heart, and doesn't shy away from difficult terrain. Facing and combatting white supremacy, the ways that high-tech "solutions" short-circuit efforts for social change, how one might come to embrace the possibility of death on the frontlines of nonviolent struggle--whatever strand of the conversation it engages, The Gandhian Iceberg is refreshingly plainspoken and thought-provoking.
