Book News Annotation:

Self-described social entrepreneur and activist Halpern is a co- founder of the Center for Law and Social Policy, an early public interest law firm; the founding dean of the City U. of New York Law School at Queens College, founded with a public interest mission; former president of the grant-making Nathan Cummings Foundation; and a founding figure of the Buddhist-influenced Center for Contemplative Mind in Society, "which works to integrate contemplative awareness and contemporary life, to help create a more just, compassionate, and reflective society." In this memoir, he describes his career involved with these and other projects, paying particular attention to the path that led him to his current spiritualism.
