15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Don Driscoll on December 12, 1999
Format: Paperback
Lerner is a lifelong radical who turned to therapy and class analysis to understand why leaders and activists in social movements are often overwhelmed or defeated by their own sense of powerlessness- even when they are winning.
Field tested in support groups, workplace stress groups and family oriented programs with union members and other workers in Northern California, Lerner's work at asks most of the important questions about why work disempowers so many of us and damages our social anmd political lives. This work is also informed by Lerner's reclaiming the transformative power of religion in his own life.
Michael Lerner is a former editor of Ramparts, student and anti-war leader, and editor of Tikkun magazine.

This is Michael Lerner's most important book. It is the conceptual foundation of all is other work. To get a new copy for $5 is unbelievable!
