This book is a far-ranging journey through disparate cultures; a history beginning in the West with the American Civil War and culminating in the wisdom-sage tradition of the Far East. Along the way—in poetry, prose and translations—the work dramatizes individual and collective responses to oppression—war, tyranny and social injustice— and the triumphs and tragedies of those responses.
