From the Publisher"This motivating set of three volumes—in the tradition of Greg Mortenson's Three Cups of Tea (2006), Harry Boyte's The Citizen Solution (2008), and other books about making a positive difference—gives what its subtitle promises: inspiration, innovation, and blueprints for changing the world. . . . for students of health care, economics, political science, history, sociology, peace studies, and women's studies, this is a useful visionary resource. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers."
"There is a widespread assumption, as well as growing evidence, that social environments play a key role in individuals' willingness to accept the responsibilities of democratic citizenship and participate in civic life… This message is made with compelling force throughout the three volumes of The New Humanitarians: Inspiration, Innovations, and Blueprints for Visionaries, a collection of organizational profiles reflecting a diverse range of civic commitments…. Whereas many books published by psychologists are written by and designed for academics, The New Humanitarians includes the voices of people from many walks of life who collaborate in the service of specific causes."
