>Discover how the Woodstock Generation of the 1960s has become the Rainbow
>Warriors of the 1990s! RAINBOW NATION WITHOUT BORDERS recounts the spiritual
>search of the post-war generation, which has tried to bring about a new
>balance and harmony to a world in turmoil. The leaders of Greenpeace
>International, Rainbow Gatherings, and eco-feminist communities worldwide
>describe how legend and myth are transformed into the reality of historical
>change as the Earth moves toward an "ecotopian millennium."

>What Theodore Roszak's MAKING OF THE COUNTERCULTURE was to the '60s and '70s,
>and Marilyn Ferguson's AQUARIAN CONSPIRACY was to the '80s, Alberto Ruz
>Buenfil's RAINBOW NATION WITHOUT BORDERS will be to the '90s. Weaving
>together radical history, visionary politics, and Native American prophecy,
>Alberto Ruz Buenfil's message is bold and clear: if the rainbow nation does
>not become the mainstream of the 1990s, you can forget about the 21st
Jose Arguelles, author of THE MAYAN FACTOR and EARTH ASCENDING

>Written in a clear and concise manner, RAINBOW NATION WITHOUT BORDERS will
>let you discover and even feel from a first-row seat the emergence and
>maturation of some of the most extraordinary seeds of change in this world.
>From the beatniks' spontaneous experiences of the '60s to the New Age
>communities and events of the '80s, an ever-growing army of Rainbow Warriors
>is actively preparing the way for a soon-to-come golden age of peace and
Jean Hudon, director of Global Awareness in Action

>The international Rainbow phenomenon is the most important social movement of
>our time, and RAINBOW NATION WITHOUT BORDERS represents the first
>comprehensive study of its origins and current developments.
Steve Hager, editor-in-chief of HIGH TIMES magazine
