1 - 2 weeks availability


From a number of perspectives, it explores the civic implications of the ubiquity of interdependence, and the urgent need for citizens to expand their sense of responsibility beyond community and nation to all the world's people if we are to choose a future that holds the promise of liberty and justice for all. Readings focus on the realities of interdependence as they affect all aspects of life-personal, social, political, cultural and economic. It is clearly evident in communication and information technologies, in the spread of disease and corruption, and in the environmental movement. Also included is a section on practical ways to celebrate Interdependence Day annually on September 12th for schools, colleges, religious, civic and cultural organizations and whole communities throughout the world.
