  • Integrities, XII, Double Issue, 1998.
    This is a quarterly magazine based in Watsonville, California, and edited by Bill Cane, for whom R-H is a regular source of inspiration. Integrities is the organ of IF, a charitable organization that focuses on economic and social assistance to people in need, primarily in Central America. There is rarely an issue of Integrities that does not include quotations from R-H, but in this case not as a historian, or sociologist, or theologian, or philosopher of language, but as a spur to social action. This 1998 issue cited is devoted almost entirely to R-H.
