Series: Resurgence Anthologies

Visionaries of the 20th Century brings together the lives and works of 100 great men and women who offered inspiration, hope and healing. The 20th century was marked by wars, dictatorships and environmental destruction, yet many individuals kept alive the hope of a sane and sustainable future through their example, ideas and vision. Their influence helped to bring
colonialism and imperialism, apartheid and authoritarian regimes to an end. They also generated a resurgence of ecological, holistic and spiritual vision. Visionaries of the 20th Century includes articles about:
• World leaders: Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela
and the Dalai Lama
• Spiritual figures: Krishnamurti, Bede Griffiths, Matthew Fox
and Thich Nhat Hanh
• Writers: Kahlil Gibran, Kathleen Raine, Wendell Berry
and Arundhati Roy
• Scientists: Rachel Carson, Jane Goodall, and James Lovelock
• Politicians: Mikhail Gorbachev and Vaclav Havel
• Organic pioneers: Lady Eve Balfour and H. J. Massingham
• Educationalists: Ivan Illich and Rabindranath Tagore
• Economists: E. F. Schumacher and Muhammad Yunus
• Ecological activists: Vandana Shiva and Wangari Maathai.
