A Letter from Judy Rebick.

I am very excited about my new book Transforming Power: From the Personal to the Political, which is coming out in early March.

Transforming Power is the result of the last two or three years of my travels around the world looking for new approaches to political and social action and my life time of experience as an activist. I am hoping it will inspire dialogue and action about the new paths to social change we need to transform this planet and create a better world.

You can get a preview of the book at our very cool new web site

In Transforming Power, veteran activist Judy Rebick champions new ways of achieving political goals by emphasizing co-operation and consensus over confrontation and partisanship.

Rebick argues that today's combination of environmental crisis, globalization, and rapid technological innovation is producing profound new ideas about social and political life, and that this groundswell is truly the vanguard of a global movement to change the way we live our lives, from the ground up.

Judy Rebick is the author of Ten Thousand Roses: The Making of a Feminist Revolution and the CAW Sam Gindin Chair in social justice and democracy at Ryerson University. She lives in Toronto.
