Love That Does Justice

Much of my current work focuses on the links between personal and social transformation, following Gandhi's advice that we should "be the change we want to see in the world" and Martin Luther King's philosophy of the "Love that does Justice" or the "Beloved Community." This includes a new book I am writing on "Love and Economics" that is scheduled for publication in 2010.

In the meantime, I hope you will check out the previously-published articles and speeches listed below, including a free download of a book edited with Stephen Post called "The Love that does Justice", which contains 42 short pieces by leading activists and scholars who reflect together on the transformative potential of this kind of work.
