Publisher Comments:

"I was determined to change my life in accordance with the ideals of the book."  —Gandhi on Unto this Last
 
One of the most influential political essays ever written, Unto this Last was one of the defining texts of British socialism and reading it was a decisive experience in the lives of Gandhi (who translated it into Gujarati) and Martin Luther King, among many others. Ruskin's lessons are as urgently needed today as ever, as his attack on the greed and short-termism of unbridled capitalism, and on the pursuit of money instead of true wealth, are every bit as inspiring and challenging as they were when it was published 150 years ago. A new introduction by Andrew Hill discusses the value of the essay in an age of credit crunch. A foreword by the Master of the Guild of St. George, Ruskin's association for social reform, sets out what Ruskinians today can do and are doing.
