Peggy Holman is one of perhaps twelve “originals” in the organizational and community development space for direct democracy, collective decision-making, and self-organization to address complex challenges in creative ways foreign to the linear reductionist thinking that characterizes most groups. Her two books, The Change Handbook and Engaging Emergence, are standards in the field. She is working on a third book, Engaged Journalism, that is certain to be a standard as well.
