No One Is Coming to Help. Now What?
In this era of increasingly complex problems and shrinking resources, can we find meaningful and enduring solutions to the challenges we face today as individuals, communities, and nations?
In Walk Out Walk On, we invite you on a learning journey to seven communities around the world to meet people who have walked out of limiting beliefs and assumptions and walked on to create healthy and resilient communities. These Walk Outs who Walk On use their ingenuity and caring to figure out how to work with what they have to create what they need.
From Mexico to India, from Columbus, Ohio to Johannesburg, South Africa, we discover that all communities have the intelligence and inventiveness to solve their seemingly insolvable problems. "We discovered a gift inside ourselves," one Brazilian said, "something that was already there."

Death by China: Confronting the Dragon - A Global Call to Action

Death by China: Confronting the Dragon - A Global Call to Action Lowest new price: $89.97
Lowest used price: $48.00
List price: $25.99
Author: Peter W. Navarro

The world's most populous nation and soon-to-be largest economy is rapidly turning into the planet's most efficient assassin. Unscrupulous Chinese entrepreneurs are flooding world markets with lethal products. China's perverse form of capitalism combines illegal mercantilist and protectionist weapons to pick off American industries, job by job. China's emboldened military is racing towards head-on confrontation with the U.S. Meanwhile, America's executives, politicians, and even academics remain silent about the looming threat. Now, best-selling author and noted economist Peter Navarro meticulously exposes every form of "Death by China," drawing on the latest trends and events to show a relationship spiraling out of control.

 

Death by China reveals how thousands of Chinese cyber dissidents are being imprisoned in "Google Gulags"; how Chinese hackers are escalating coordinated cyberattacks on U.S. defense and America's key businesses; how China's undervalued currency is damaging the U.S., Europe, and the global recovery; why American companies are discovering that the risks of operating in China are even worse than they imagined; how China is promoting nuclear proliferation in its pursuit of oil; and how the media distorts the China story--including a "Hall of Shame" of America's worst China apologists.

 

This book doesn't just catalogue China's abuses: It presents a call to action and a survival guide for a critical juncture in America's history--and the world's.

Virtually any commodity can move around the world to satisfy demand, but human beings have far less freedom. Many would-be migrants are forced to risk life and limb traveling illegally.

Just Act. Listen Up. Coolgirls. Youth for Environmental Sanity. Third Eye Movement. Heads Up. Earth Rights International. Circle of Life Foundation. Global Youth Connect. Ruckus Society. United Students Against Sweatshops…

There’s a growing new global movement for justice today, and it’s largely driven by a new generation of activists. Younger people from the US and around the first world, as well as those from developing countries, are all standing up for peace, the environment, and for social justice—and they’re demanding to be heard.

Global Uprising documents this new youth movement through compelling first person narratives, interviews with both new and seasoned activists, poster art, poetry, and striking black and white photographs. Issues addressed include globalization and economic inequity, racism and women’s rights, police brutality, media control, sweatshop labor and fair trade, the prison industrial complex and the criminalization of youth, old-growth forest destruction, and biotechnology. Older activists and world leaders tell their own stories, offering historical perspective and context. Youth-run organizations are highlighted throughout, as well as other key resources.

Visually and emotionally powerful, Global Uprising captures the spirit and passion of youth activism, honoring young people’s power to effect serious change. It will have wide appeal both to younger people and to a range of others who care about the state of the world today—and tomorrow.
