From William Penn’s time to now, Quakers have been influential with continuing tradition of work for justice and peace in the world, arising from their religious experience. Quakers are not unique in the work they do, so what is distinctive about their approach and what can it offer the world today? This book’s contributors represent a wide range of experience as Quakers at work. Together they suggest there is still a crucial gap to be filled by projects such as theirs, and offer some criteria for running them. Endeavours to Mend will interest students of peace and international studies, and anyone thinking about how small-scale idealistic and religious groups can work for peace.
