How do serious-thinking people address the problems of poverty, globalisation, the destruction of human dignity, genocide and the rights of children? Arousing out of this challenge, this book makes people think and connect wires, encourages them to question their place within the world and discusses issues that have been changed by individuals.
Michelle Brown is Curator of Medieval manuscripts at the British Library and a Lay Canon of St Paul's Cathedral. Richard J. Kelly is Professor of Anglo Saxon Studies at the University of Kobe in Japan.
