Abstract:

"The Leaderless Revolution is a call to action for all of us. It is an extraordinarily bold book, which argues that rather than rely on failing political and economic systems to effect change, individual citizens must create change themselves through their own actions and collaboration with others. There is a whiff of revolution in the air, not only in the Middle East. This book proposes a revolution for everyone, everywhere, who feels ignored by government dominated by corporate interests and an economic system tilted toward profit and greed."--Jacket of hardcover ed.
