"What keeps us going when times get tough? In The Impossible Will Take a Little While, political leaders and heroic activists show us the way. Paul Rogat Loeb, the author of Soul of a Citizen, brings together a collection of essays and stories that range across nations, eras, and political movements. From international legends Nelson Mandela and Vaclav Havel, to American icons Cornel West and Alice Walker, to the untiring, unheralded activists working for peace, justice, and the health of our planet, these writers explore a path of heartfelt community involvement that leads beyond despair to compassion and hope."--BOOK JACKET.
