Reviews: The Color of Freedom

The Color of Freedom
Advanced Praise for
The Color of Freedom
by Laura Coppo
Foreword by Vandana Shiva
Edited with an Introduction and Notes by David H. Albert
Common Courage Press (May 15, 2004)
"The Color of Freedom is TERRIFIC! I read it with breathless attention and shouts of joy! This is exactly the kind of book we need: a real-life story with real-life heroes whose travails and triumphs enrich our own experience, seeding new possibilities. In this dark time, this book is both spiritually satisfying and strategically invigorating. These people are moral giants, in comparison with whom we are like pygmies. After the strong review of multinational shrimp farming, I think that I have eaten my last prawn!"

"Be forewarned: this is a provocative and dangerous book. The Color of Freedom is seemingly an account of the marvelous passion of a man and a woman, but make no mistake: it is really about you and the hidden strength which you have yet to draw upon."
