For more than a decade, Mikhail Gorbachev has been engaged in working to protect the Earth and its inhabitants through Green Cross International, the organization he founded in 1992. In an age when ecological crises, poverty, and military conflicts have become the primary global challenges, Gorbachev urges us to stop trying to view and solve these problems in isolation. The man who changed the destiny of Russia, Europe, and the world itself now calls for a global and comprehensive Perestroika (reform) for the twenty-first century.
In a partisan and polarized world, this “manifesto” never compromises its integrity to political, ideological, or national sympathies. Manifesto for the Earth is a courageous and thought-provoking work―a roadmap to a better world for everyone―by one of the world’s most respected elder statesman.
