Empathy Armed?

This book is a perfect example of how empathy can change a person. From a militant revolutionary socialist and member of the working class to a person who sees the need to live based on true emotion, the main character, Hyacinth Robinson, demonstrates perfectly how politics and regard for others play in the battle for minds.
