In this booklet, Ed Chambers mulls about the need for human beings to develop their "Public life." He argues that it is by taking action that we define who we are as adults. Action Creates Public Life is about how our action in the world-as-it-is helps create the world-as-it-could-be. It is written for those who want to participate in Public life, not just sit around and complain about things or hide in their homes watching their TV sets.
