A Rebellious Spirit: Perspectives and Legacy of Pracha Hutanuwatr

E-book version


A book in two parts, this publication first features a selection of Pracha’s writing related to Engaged Buddhism in contemporary society. Tackling topics such as globalization, consumerism, education, ethnic conflict, violence and peacemaking these essays echo the deep influence which Buddhadasa Bhikkhu and Ajahn Sulak Sivaraksa had on Pracha’s thought.

Part two illustrates testimonies and memories from students, colleagues and friends around the world reflecting on the influence which Pracha had in their lives.

A charismatic and complex man with many contradictions, Pracha was always a leading light on the path towards a more just, sustainable and authentic future.

403 pages including curated images.

All proceeds from the book will go to furthering Pracha’s work.
