Scott Nearing focused on the future, and his writings are startlingly fresh and applicable today. During his 100-year life (1883-1983) he wrote more than 50 books and monographs about vital social issues. For the first time, this reader offers rare material from Nearing's private library and other difficult-to-find books, pamphlets, debates, and the transcript of his trial (he was the only pacifist acquitted of government charges during World War I). This collection of maverick thought contains select excerpts from Nearing's pioneering works, including United World, Woman and Social Progress, Democracy Is Not Enough, Social Religion, War, and Black America.
