Ronald Logan gives the first in-depth and systematic introduction to PROUT, the visionary socioeconomic theory of P.R. Sarkar. PROUT offers a constructive response – based on economic decentralism, ecological and cultural sustainability, and spiritual values – to growing global demand for a viable alternative to economic globalism, unsustainable development, economic disparity, and destruction of the global commons. It seeks to nurture the holistic development of a liberated, united society in which all individuals can fully develop and express their potentials. PROUT shares many of the program objectives of green, deep ecology, natural capitalism, and other progressive social philosophies, but is more comprehensive in scope and more firmly grounded in spiritual-humanist values.

 The author/editor, is an internationally recognized authority on PROUT and Director of the Prout Institute.
