Overview

In this eye-opening book, David Lorimer outlines the radical thinking that underpins the Prince of Wales's vision in the areas of ecology, organic agriculture, holistic health, religion, architecture and education, and the ways in which he has translated this into practical projects through the Prince's Trust, the Duchy of Cornwall, the Prince's Foundation, his Foundation for Integrated Health and his International Business Leaders Forum. Radical Prince shows for the first time how the Prince of Wales's ideas are linked by an underlying spiritual and ecological philosophy. Prince Charles adopts an integrated approach in his work, blending the best of the traditional with the best of the modern. The book also demonstrates how the Prince is practically engaged with the central issues of our time as they matter to ordinary people. Prince Charles is frequently criticized in the media for his outspokenness. Radical Prince challenges popular misconceptions about him and explains how he has carved out a unique and influential role in national and international life.
