Recommended to Karen by: required reading for a conflict resolution course
lots of good information. The author not only supplies the reader with knowledge, but she provides the sources of where she got the information from, allowing the reader to verify the information. An excellent book for anyone who is interested in community, social issues, activism, and freedom.
