Anita Roddick is not only one of the most successful businesswomen in the world, she's also one of the most effective campaigners for social justice of our time. In A Revolution in Kindness Roddick brings together a wide variety of voices speaking on the subject of kindness. Entertainers, philosophers, political prisoners, writers, fashion designers, and rock 'n' rollers are all represented, along with poignant thoughts from the invisible, homeless, and disenfranchised.

This provocative book turns the preconception of kindness on its head. Its entries are deliberate, strong, assertive, and incite action to make the world a better place now. The contributions of Annie Lenox, Antonio Banderas, Lao Tzu, Kahlil Gibran, Fritjov Capra, Angelina Jolie, and many others are presented on individually designed pages with illustrations throughout.

Anita Roddick opened the first Body Shop in 1976 in Brighton, England. Today it is a multilocal business with 1,700 stores in 47 countries, trading in 24 languages. She cares passionately about social responsiveness, human rights, the environment, and animal protection. Roddick has received numerous awards, including the Veuve Clicquot Business Woman of the Year award, the Center for World Development Education World Vision Award, and National Audobon Society medal. A member of Business for Social Responsibility, Mother Jones' Magazine Foundation for National Progress, and the Non-Violence Project Foundation, Anita is also the Patron of Body and Soul, the Schumacher College for Human Scale Education, and the Association for Creation Spirituality. She is the author of Body and Soul and Business as Unusual.
