By little and by little : the selected writings of Dorothy Day by Dorothy Day( Book )

12 editions published between 1983 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 999 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When she died in 1980, Dorothy Day was called "the most significant, interesting and influential person in the history of American Catholicism" (Commonweal), and "a non-violent social radical of luminous personality" (The New York Times). As co-founder in 1933 (with the French peasant philosopher Peter Maurin) of the Catholic Worker movement, and for almost fifty years editor and publisher of its newspaper, she applied the Gospels to a sweeping radical critique of our economic, social, and political system, and addressed the most urgent issues of our time: poverty, labor, justice, civil liberties, and disarmament. She saw the movement as an affirmation of life and sanity, and a way to "bring about the kind of society where it is easier to be good." The present volume is a selection of Dorothy Day's published work, spanning a period of over fifty years. Although the great majority of the pieces have been reprinted from The Catholic Worker, a number of other magazine articles are included, as well as selections from all her books. - Publisher

Ishi means man : [essays] by Thomas Merton( )

6 editions published between 1976 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thoughtful collection of Merton's essays on various Native American cultures provides a valuable window on Merton's important work raising consciousness about the key social justice issues confronting the world in his later years--issues that continue to have a profound impact on our world today. With references to the civil rights movement and the United States war in Vietnam, Merton draws parallels from history and the modern world to show the deep-rooted nature of society's injustice. In 'Ishi Means Man', Merton's commitment to interreligious, intercultural understanding is the powerful overarching theme that continues to inspire. (Back cover)
