Summary of Blessed Unrest Summary of Blessed Unrest Reviews for Blessed Unrest An Excerpt from Blessed Unrest
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.

Blessed Unrest is exciting, compelling and very important. . . . It will inspire and encourage millions more to take action.”
—Jane Goodall

“Writing with zest, clarity, and a touch of wonder . . . Hawken offers a fascinating history of our perception of nature and human rights. Hawken also presents an unprecedented map to this new ‘social landscape.’”
