When some said they hoped a dialogue would ensue, I invited Patricia Gilmore, an experienced journalist, to edit the letters into a one section, while I wrote about my "third journey" in another.

My first journey, through third-world countries, and my second, through history, were described in Facing Social Revolution.

The third journey was among Friends, during the summer of 1987 when I attended seven Quaker gatherings: Intermountain, New York, Baltimore, and New England Yearly Meetings; Friends General Conference; the Quaker Association for Economic Democracy; and Friends Association for Higher Education.
