During the 35 years since the publication of Fritz Schumacher's seminal bestseller Small is Beautiful: economics as if people mattered, many of his prophetic warnings have come to pass.  In Small is Beautiful in the 21st Century Diana Schumacher traces her father-in-law E.F. Schumacher's legacy through the activities and outreach of those pioneers who, over the years, have been working on practical solutions to our interrelated global crises. In particular, the book describes how several flourishing organisations, some large and some small, have remained closely linked with his ideas and work, and have since become associated as the Schumacher Circle.

The particular contribution of Fritz Schumacher and Small is Beautifulwas to bring a profound wisdom and humanity to bear on the practical challenges of our time, and this Schumacher Briefing both illuminates Schumacher's thinking and shows the ways in which each of us can help to turn our present crisis into the opportunity to build a more kind, just and ecologically sustainable society.
