The Way of Compassion

Vegetarianism, Environmentalism, Animal Advocacy, and Social Justice

Edited by Martin Rowe

In a world filled with what seems only bad news, it is easy to become overwhelmed by the extent of environmental degradation, violence to other species, and collective suffering. The problems seem so immense and so intractable that they often lead only to one despairing question: "What can I do?" According to this book, the answer is "a lot."

The Way of Compassion collects the inspiring, thoughtful and eminently practical wisdom of contemporary thinkers and activists from all walks of life, working to maintain sustainable lifestyles, practice nonviolence in all its forms and create a deeper spiritual appreciation of our place in the world. These pioneers offer timely, sensible and sometimes challenging advice on how we can all play our parts in creating a more harmonious and peaceful planet.

Contributors include: Carol J. Adams, Matt Ball, Rod Coronado, Roger and Deborah Fouts, Maneka Gandhi, Jane Goodall, Dick Gregory, James Hillman, Howard Lyman, Mia MacDonald, Jim Mason, John Robbins, Paul Shapiro, Henry Spira, among many others.
