Fleeing from Nazi Europe in the late 1930s, Austrian-born Karl K nig and his colleagues founded the first Camphill community, for children with special needs, outside Aberdeen in the north of Scotland. The seven essays by K nig in this book explain the principles behind what would grow to become a worldwide movement.

The insights in this book reveal the inner motivations that drove K nig and his team to persevere with their social project, and help modern-day readers to understand how they succeeded in building a network that now numbers over one hundred communities in twenty countries around the world.

Includes extensive diary excerpts, documents and photographs from the Karl K nig Archive.
