Barbara Ward: Her Life and Letters
Barbara Ward was one of the world's most outstanding writers and speakers on environment and development issues. She was a pioneer of the international movement which led on issues from resource scarcity and protecting the environment to climate change and planetary survival. 'Our visionary perspective is the true realism - and that is what we must pursue', she wrote.
Barbara Ward was a close ally of world politicians both in the United States and the United Kingdom; she was a confidante of figures such as Ernest Bevin, Adlai Stevenson and Lyndon Johnson. This book brings all Ward's genius and qualities to life - her eloquence, her intellect, her charm and her unique ability to analyse the challenges of development in the contemporary world.
