At a critical time in American life, Parker J. Palmer looks with realism and hope at how to deal with our political tensions for the sake of the common good - without the shouting, blaming, or defaming so common in our politics today. In his newest book, Parker J. Palmer builds on his own extensive experience as an inner life explorer and social change activist to examine the personal and social infrastructure of American politics.

Parker Palmer’s book, Healing the Heart of Democracy, was published seven years ago, but it speaks eloquently to the situations we face at this very moment—which hadn’t even been imagined in 2011. I wish all Americans would read it. It is not only wise and informative, but also nourishing and sustaining. I couldn’t possibly recommend it more highly.
