‘This book... is not a single “meal” in itself but a positive “larder” containing every imaginable staple food and condiment all exquisitely and thoroughly researched. The book took Goff Barrett-Lennard 20 years to write and it will stand as a reference text for person-centred specialists for longer than that... an essential reference text... and a pantry full of delicious surprises’ — Counselling, The Journal of the British Association for Counselling

A Time of New Pathways: Twenties Dissonance to New Deal Dawn
The possibility of freedom is deeply grounded in our very beings. It is one with our individuality, our being uniquely what we are and not imitators and parasites of others. But like all other possibilities, this possibility has to be actualized: and, like all others, it can only be actualized through interaction with objective conditions. The question of political and economic freedom is not an addendum or afterthought … in the problem of personal freedom. For the conditions that form political and economic liberty are required in order to realize the potentiality of freedom each of us carries with him in his very structure.
