Lives that Speak: Stories of Twentieth Century Quakers
One can pick up this book and start anywhere; each story stands on its own merits, including pictures of the hero/heroine at various stages of life. If you are wondering about the civil rights movement turn to Bayard Rustin, the African-American who first went to prison for refusing to sign his draft card. If you are wondering about nonviolent change look up Steve Angell, or Gordon Hirabayashi, or Phillip Noel-Baker, all powerful exemplars of putting their lives on the line for matters of conscience. If third world development is your passion, read about Carol Reilley or Barbara Reynolds. Each chapter has a short study guide, with questions and activities. Some chapters include links to websites and other relevant resources.
