George D. Bond
| Price: $ 21.95
More than four decades after one of the world¿s most impressive community-development efforts began, we can finally examine the Sarvodaya Shramadana Movement in historical, cultural and political contexts. George Bond¿s book offers an excellent perspective on how the premises and practices of Sarvodaya evolved over time. Richard S. Brooks University of Wisconsin-Madison
The cross-currents of globalization and terror often seem to overshadow the positive potential of community development from the bottom up. In response, George Bond presents one of the world's most inspirational mutual self-help stories. Buddhism at Work explores the vision and evolution of the Sarvodaya Shramadana Movement in Sri Lanka, as its members have sought to engage and awaken society with Buddhist and Gandhian ideals.
Now an international movement and NGO, Sarvodaya calls for individuals and groups to bring about non-violent social transformation through grassroots cooperative work. Its vision and its voice are poised to contribute significantly to the emerging global dialogue on peace, social justice and community development. This book contains a lesson for us all.
