I would love to be part of one of these courageous groups, who fight for the health and quality of life and a fair economy. Since it is now almost 18 years since this book was written, if feel the need to "catch up" on these group in Francis Moore Lappe's later books. So I have still a lot to read. However, I think that activism should come first. Sitting at home reading doesn't get much done.
