Please note: My book was published on 1 June and is available now. It is NOT spiral bound. (Errors were made by Nielson, the people who provide ISBNs, which they have told me will be corrected.)

Tagore was an important pioneer and advocate for the principle of self-help, but this aspect of his work is not well understood. He believed that people should be given the freedom to work co-operatively towards self-reliance at the local community level, and enrich their lives as a result.
In this carefully researched book the author allows Tagore to speak through a set of published lecture texts by exploring their context and background in order to discover his motives and feelings at the time. Listening to and understanding Tagore’s insights and practical experiments could revive the faith he had in humanity and give us hope and courage to take a different path in the Twenty-First century.
