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: $130.00
Lowest used price: $23.99
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.

Lowest used price: $2.97
List price: $16.00
Author: Dahr Jamail
Brand: Brand: Haymarket Books

“International journalism at its best.”—Stephen Kinzer

“Every conflict spawns a handful of journalists who are willing to not only brave the war zone but to seek out the stories ignored by the press pack. The Iraq War has brought us Dahr Jamail. . . . I suspect Jamail’s account will prove an enduring document of what really happened during the chaotic years of occupation, and how it transformed ordinary Iraqis. . . . It tells everything.”—Mother Jones

“From the earliest days of the war, Dahr Jamail has been a human conduit for the voices of Iraqis living under U.S. occupation. In the face of tremendous personal risk, his commitment to the crucial, principled task of bearing witness has never wavered, and this extraordinary book is the result.”—Naomi Klein

Named by AlterNet as one of the top three progressive books of 2007 alongside Naomi Klein’s The Shock Doctrine and Jeremy Scahill’s Blackwater, Dahr Jamail’s Beyond the Green Zone goes past the polished desks of the corporate media and Washington politicians to tell first hand of the reality of life in Iraq.

Dahr Jamail is an independent journalist who has covered the Middle East for more than four years. Jamail writes for the Inter Press Service and many other outlets and is a regular guest on Democracy Now!. He lives in California.

Amy Goodman is a best-selling author and the host of Democracy Now!.

Soldiers of God: With Islamic Warriors in Afghanistan and Pakistan

Soldiers of God: With Islamic Warriors in Afghanistan and Pakistan Lowest new price: $5.60
Lowest used price: $1.00
List price: $16.95
Author: Robert D. Kaplan
Brand: Kaplan, Robert D.

First time in paperback, with a new Introduction and final chapter

World affairs expert and intrepid travel journalist Robert D. Kaplan braved the dangers of war-ravaged Afghanistan in the 1980s, living among the mujahidin—the “soldiers of god”—whose unwavering devotion to Islam fueled their mission to oust the formidable Soviet invaders. In Soldiers of God we follow Kaplan’s extraordinary journey and learn how the thwarted Soviet invasion gave rise to the ruthless Taliban and the defining international conflagration of the twenty-first century.

Kaplan returns a decade later and brings to life a lawless frontier. What he reveals is astonishing: teeming refugee camps on the deeply contentious Pakistan-Afghanistan border; a war front that combines primitive fighters with the most technologically advanced weapons known to man; rigorous Islamic indoctrination academies; a land of minefields plagued by drought, fierce tribalism, insurmountable ethnic and religious divisions, an abysmal literacy rate, and legions of war orphans who seek stability in military brotherhood. Traveling alongside Islamic guerrilla fighters, sharing their food, observing their piety in the face of deprivation, and witnessing their determination, Kaplan offers a unique opportunity to increase our understanding of a people and a country that are at the center of world events.

Shake Hands With The Devil The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda

Shake Hands With The Devil The Failure of Humanity in Rwanda Lowest new price: $49.02
Lowest used price: $2.29
Author: Dallaire Romeo Lieutenant-General
Brand: Brand: Random House Canada

THE NUMBER ONE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER WINNER OF THE GOVERNOR GENERAL'S AWARD 'Indisputably the best account of the whole terrible Rwandan genocide.' R. W. Johnson, Sunday Times 'Angry, accusatory and extremely moving.' Caroline Moorhead, Spectator When Lieutenant General Romeo Dallaire received the call to serve as force commander of the UN mission to Rwanda, he thought he was heading off to Africa to help two warring parties achieve a peace both sides wanted. Instead, he and members of his small international force were caught up in a vortex of civil war and genocide. Dallaire left Rwanda a broken man; disillusioned, suicidal, and determined to tell his story. An award-winning international sensation, Shake Hands with the Devil is a landmark contribution to the literature of war: a remarkable tale of a soldier's courage and an unforgettable portrait of modern warfare. It is also a stinging indictment of the petty bureaucrats who refused to give Dallaire the men and the operational freedom he needed to stop the killing. 'I know there is a God,' Dallaire writes, 'because in Rwanda I shook hands with the devil. I have seen him, I have smelled him and I have touched him. I know the devil exists and therefore I know there is a God.' 'Read Romeo Dallaire's profoundly sad and moving book.' Madeleine Albright, Washington Post

Hostage in Taipei : A True Story of Forgiveness and Hope Lowest new price: $9.50
Lowest used price: $4.44
List price: $13.95
Author: McGill Alexander
Brand: Brand: Cladach Pub

A re-enactment of this hostage crisis was broadcast by National Geographic Channel in their Locked Up Abroad series of docudramas (2008). Colonel McGill Alexander was serving as a South African diplomat in Taiwan in the late 1990s. His family felt safe there - until Taiwan's most-wanted criminal, Chen Chin-hsing, broke into their home and held them at gunpoint, using the diplomatic family as pawns to free his imprisoned wife. Used as human shields during a gun battle between the killer and the trigger-happy Taiwanese police, McGill and his daughter, Melanie, were shot. After a grueling 26 hours, the entire family was freed. Chen was captured and found guilty of multiple crimes.

The book includes on-the-scene news photos as well as personal, behind-the-scenes photos. One of Taiwan's biggest news stories ever, these events thrust the Alexander family into the media spotlight. As Christian believers, they showed Taiwan and the rest of the world a stunning example of Christ's forgiveness in the midst of terror, violence and revenge.
