Manifesto for Another World: Voices from Beyond the Dark : Words of Witness from the Dalai Lama, Juliana Dogbadzi, Marian Wright Edelman, Baltasar Garzón, Vaclav Havel, Ka Hsaw Wa, Rigoberta Menchú Tum, Bobby Muller, Digna Ochoa, Marina Pisklakova, Sister Helen Prejean, José Ramos-Horta, Oscar Arias Sánchez, Kailash Satyarthi, Desmond Tutu, Koigi Wa Wamwere, Elie Wiesel, José Zalaquett, and Many Others
In this interlocking prose web of first-person testimony, novelist, poet, and playwright Ariel Dorfman relates the struggles of fifty human rights activists hailing from more than forty countries. Manifesto for Another World features the words and struggles of internationally celebrated activists including Vaclav Havel, Baltasar Garzón, Helen Prejean, and Marian Wright Edelman; and Nobel Prize Laureates the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Elie Wiesel, Oscar Arias Sánchez, Rigoberta Menchú Tum, José Ramos-Horta, and Bobby Muller. Equally moving are the stories of more than thirty others, unknown and (as yet) unsung beyond their national boundaries: Kailash Satyarthi, who has spent a lifetime working to free tens of thousands of victims of child labor in his native India, and Juliana Dogbadzi, who was sold into sexual slavery by her parents at age twelve, escaped after seventeen degrading years, and now is devoted to the liberation of African girls bound in the same terror. From their ranging voices Dorfman culls the message: freedom from persecution, and freedom of opportunity, for all. Manifesto for Another World is both a political testament and a work of art.
