First published in 1968, the year of international-student confrontation and revolution, this classic challenges readers to choose which of two roads humankind ought to take: the one, leading to a completely mechanized society with the individual a helpless cog in a machine bent on mass destruction; or the second, being the path of humanism and hope.

Dieses Buch verdankt seine Entstehung einem politischen Engagement Fromms: Mit aller Kraft setzte er sich 1967 und 1968 für den demokratischen Präsidentschaftskandidaten Eugene McCarthy ein, in dem er einen Hoffnungsträger für eine grundlegende Wandel in der Politik sah. Die Revolution der Hoffnung enthält Gedanken und Entwürfe für eine Neuorganisation von Wirtschaft, Gesellschaft, Politik und Kultur. Nirgendwo sonst schreibt Fromm so profund über „Hoffnung“ und die Fähigkeit zu glauben und zu hoffen. Im 4. Kapitel „Was heißt es, menschlich zu sein?“ arbeitet Fromm jene Erfahrungen heraus, die nur dem Menschen eigen sind und so einen einmaligen Beitrag zu seinem Menschenbild darstellen. Der Untertitel des Buches deutet eine weitere Besonderheit an: Nur hier hat sich Fromm so ausführlich mit dem Doppelgesicht der Technik auseinandergesetzt. Hintergrund ist sein Konzept der Nekrophilie, des Angezogenseins von allem Nicht-Lebendigen, das die Nutzung der technischen Möglichkeiten statt der im Menschen selbst gründenden Möglichkeiten so attraktiv macht. Schließlich spricht Fromm in Kapitel 5 von den „Schritten zur Humanisierung der technologischen Gesellschaft“. Er führt damit sein Konzept einer psychisch gesunden Gesellschaft fort, das er erstmals in Wege aus einer kranken Gesellschaft vorgestellt hat. In Die Revolution der Hoffnung trägt er der vor allem durch den technischen Fortschritt ermöglichten Bürokratisierung in Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft Rechnung und zeigt die Dimensionen eines „humanisierten Konsums“ auf.

In this remarkable book, Shirin Ebadi, Iranian human rights lawyer and activist, and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, tells her extraordinary life story. Dr Ebadi is a tireless voice for reform in her native Iran, where she argues for a new interpretation of Sharia law in harmony with vital human rights such as democracy, equality before the law, religious freedom and freedom of speech. She is known for defending dissident figures, and for the establishment of a number of non-profit grassroots organisations dedicated to human rights. In 2003 she became the first Muslim woman, and the first Iranian, to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize. She chronicles her childhood and upbringing before the Iranian Revolution, her education and student years at the University of Tehran, her marriage and its challenges, her religious faith, and her life as a mother and as an advocate for the oppressed. As a human rights campaigner, in particular for women, children and political prisoners in Iran, her autobiography is a must-read for anyone fascinated by the life story and beliefs of a courageous and unusual woman, as well as those interested in current events (especially those of the Middle East), and those who want to know the truth about the position of women in a Muslim society.
Status-quo Christianity has traded the revolutionary story of Jesus for familiar cliches, pat answers, and domesticated programs. McLaren states, "More and more Christian leaders are beginning to realize that for the millions of young adults who have recently dropped out of church, Christianity is a failed religion...It has focused on 'me' and 'my eternal destiny,' but it has failed to address the dominant societal and global realities of their lifetime..." What he sets forth in this provocative, unsettling work is a "form of Christian faith that is holistic, integral, balanced, that offers good news for both the living and the dying, that speaks of God's grace at work both in this life and the life to come, both to individuals and to societies and the planet as a whole."
