About this product
- DescriptionThis is the story of one good man's struggle to be radical, like his Canadian prairie heroes, and to be compassionate in his response to the needs of others. Ted Scott fixed his energy on persons, while at the same time working fervently to address the systemic issues affecting the poor and oppressed, the marginalised and weak. The book is also a story of the turbulent times in which Scott lived -- the Great Depression of the 1930s and the near-collapse of Western capitalism, the horror of the second world war and the nuclear age, the 1960s with their optimistic belief that people acting together could change the world, and the 1970s and 1980s when globalising market forces threatened both lands and livelihoods. The author draws on extensive interviews with Scott's friends, family and critics, and on the millions of words written about him, to give us a lively picture of the man and his times.
