A must-read for graduates, students, and everyone seeking to help bend the arc of history toward justice, To Repair the World:
- challenges readers to counter failures of imagination that keep billions of people without access to health care, safe drinking water, decent schools, and other basic human rights
- champions the power of partnership against global poverty, climate change, and other pressing problems today
- overturns common assumptions about health disparities around the globe by considering the large-scale social forces that determine who gets sick and who has access to health care
- discusses how hope, solidarity, faith, and hardbitten analysis have animated Farmer’s service to the poor in Haiti, Peru, Rwanda, Russia, and elsewhere
- leaves the reader with an uplifting vision: that with creativity, passion, teamwork, and determination, the next generations can make the world a safer and more humane place.
