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 dot.causes, these groups collectively comprise the largest movement on earth, a movement that has no name, leader, or location and that has gone largely ignored by politicians and the media. 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.

Engage with a new vision of Buddhism and the modern world with the bestselling author of Money Sex War Karma: Notes for a Buddhist Revolution. David R. Loy addresses head-on the most pressing issues of Buddhist philosophy in our time. What is the meaning of enlightenment--is it an escape from the world, or is it a form of psychological healing? How can one reconcile modern scientific theory with ancient religious teachings? What is our role in the universe? Loy shows us that neither Buddhism nor secular society by itself is sufficient to answer these questions. Instead, he investigates the unexpected intersections of the two. Through this exchange, he uncovers a new Buddhist way, one that is faithful to the important traditions of Buddhism but compatible with modernity. This way, we can see the world as it is truly is, realize our indivisibility from it, and learn that the world's problems are our problems. This is a new path for a new world.

Entsage dem Getümmel, zieh' den Fernsehstecker, kündige deinem Internetprovider, stell' das Radio aus ... reise weniger, kauf' weniger Plunder, meide das Einkaufszentrum, schalte den Anrufbeantworter ab, wirf dein Handy weg, vereinfache dein Leben ... Diese Botschaft vermitteln der Wirtschaftsprofessor Thomas H. Naylor, der Kulturkritiker John de Graaf und der Umweltexperte David Wann auf unterhaltsame Weise, indem sie Ursachen und Wirkung des Konsumverhaltens als Krankheit (eben Affluenza) mit vielfältigen Symptomen (Stress, Überschuldung, Umweltverschmutzung, Bindungsverlust etc.) beschreiben. Basierend auf einem Dokumentarfilm im staatlichen Fernsehen der USA von 1997, werden die materiellen, psychischen und ökologischen Kosten unserer 'Überflussgesellschaft' belegt und Gegenstrategien (Therapien) entwickelt, wie man sich als Individuum dem Konsumdruck entziehen kann. Ein radikaler Ansatz zu einer anderen Lebensqualität, der manchen Lesern weltfremd, anderen doch recht lebensnah vorkommen wird.
