Manifesto for Another World (Open Media Series)

Manifesto for Another World (Open Media Series) Lowest new price: $5.89
Lowest used price: $1.50
List price: $9.95
Author: Ariel Dorfman

In this interlocking prose web of first-person testimony, novelist, poet, and playwright Ariel Dorfman relates the struggles of fifty human rights activists hailing from more than forty countries. Manifesto for Another World features the words and struggles of internationally celebrated activists including Vaclav Havel, Baltasar Garzón, Helen Prejean, and Marian Wright Edelman; and Nobel Prize Laureates the Dalai Lama, Desmond Tutu, Elie Wiesel, Oscar Arias Sánchez, Rigoberta Menchú Tum, José Ramos-Horta, and Bobby Muller. Equally moving are the stories of more than thirty others, unknown and (as yet) unsung beyond their national boundaries: Kailash Satyarthi, who has spent a lifetime working to free tens of thousands of victims of child labor in his native India, and Juliana Dogbadzi, who was sold into sexual slavery by her parents at age twelve, escaped after seventeen degrading years, and now is devoted to the liberation of African girls bound in the same terror. From their ranging voices Dorfman culls the message: freedom from persecution, and freedom of opportunity, for all. Manifesto for Another World is both a political testament and a work of art.


North Korea/South Korea: U.S. Policy at a Time of Crisis (Open Media)

North Korea/South Korea: U.S. Policy at a Time of Crisis (Open Media) Lowest new price: $5.00
Lowest used price: $3.85
List price: $9.95
Author: John Feffer

The Korean peninsula, divided for more than fifty years, is stuck in a time warp. Millions of troops face one another along the Demilitarized Zone separating communist North Korea and capitalist South Korea. In the early 1990s and again in 2002-2003, the United States and its allies have gone to the brink of war with North Korea. Misinterpretations and misunderstandings are fueling the crisis. "There is no country of comparable significance concerning which so many people are ignorant," American anthropologist Cornelius Osgood said of Korea some time ago. This ignorance may soon have fatal consequences.
North Korea, South Korea is a short, accessible book about the history and political complexites of the Korean peninsula, one that explores practical alternatives to the current US policy: alternatives that build on the remarkable and historic path of reconciliation that North and South embarked on in the 1990s and that point the way to eventual reunification.

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: $1.25
List price: $16.95
Author: Robert D. Kaplan
Brand: Robert D Kaplan

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.

Shaping Globalization: Civil Society, Cultural Power and Threefolding

Shaping Globalization: Civil Society, Cultural Power and Threefolding Lowest new price: $61.01
Lowest used price: $6.40
List price: $17.95
Author: Nicanor Perlas
Brand: Brand: New Society Publishers

Civil Society has become a major power in the world. The stunning defeat of the controversial and secretive Multilateral Agreement on Investments, the massive worldwide WTO protests, and the yearly meetings of the World Social Forum are testimony to its coming of age. With tens of millions of citizens and more than a trillion dollars involved in advancing its agenda, civil society now joins the State and the Market as the third key institution shaping globalization. However, it cannot fully mobilize its resources and power because it lacks clear understanding of its identity.

Shaping Globalization argues that global civil society is a cultural institution wielding cultural power, and shows how, through the use of this distinct power, it can advance its agenda in the political and economic realms of society without compromising its identity. The book then outlines the strategic implications for civil society both locally and globally, and explains that its key task is to inaugurate "threefolding:" the forging, where appropriate, of strategic partnerships between civil society, government, and business. Such authentic tri-sector partnerships are essential for advancing new ways for nations to develop, and for charting a different, sustainable kind of globalization. Using the model of The Philippine Agenda 21, the book shows how civil society and pro-gressive individuals and agencies in government and business are demonstrating the effectiveness of this new understanding to ensure that globalization benefits the poor, societies, and nature.

"Nicanor Perlas is one of the profound thinkers of our time. Shaping Globalization is a must-read for all who work for a positive future."-David C. Korten, author, The Post Corporate World

Nicanor Perlas is President of the Philippines Center for Alternative Development Initiatives (CADI). An international award-winner for his advocacy work on globalization and sustainable development, he has authored seven books and numerous articles, and frequently speaks at international conferences.

10 Reasons to Abolish the IMF & World Bank (Open Media Series)

10 Reasons to Abolish the IMF & World Bank (Open Media Series) Lowest new price: $8.95
Lowest used price: $2.10
List price: $8.95
Author: Kevin Danaher
Brand: Brand: Seven Stories Press

A veritable "Globalization for Dummies," 10 Reasons to Abolish the IMF & World Bank lays bare the most common myths of globalization in a clear and understandable way. Looking with hope to grassroots movement-building on a global scale, Danaher presents ten arguments for abolishing the IMF and World Bank and replacing them with democratic institutions that would make the global economy more accountable to an informed and active citizenry.
Conceived as an effort to educate the public about how international institutions of "free trade" are widening the gap between the rich and poor globally, Danaher reveals how the lending policies of the IMF and the World Bank fail to benefit Third World peoples, and instead line the pockets of undemocratic rulers and western corporations while threatening local democracies and forcing cuts to social programs.
Through anecdotes, analysis, and innovative ideas, Danaher argues that the IMF and the World Bank undermine our most basic democratic values, and calls for reframing the terms on which international economic institutions are operated using the principles of environmental sustainability, social justice, and human rights.

The Future of Israel

The Future of Israel Lowest new price: $18.99
Lowest used price: $1.99
List price: $27.95
Author: Devin Sper
Brand: Brand: Sy Publishing

In his new book, THE FUTURE OF ISRAEL, Devin Sper, scholar and passionate Zionist, offers a timely examination of Israel’s current crisis and answers the increasingly desperate question, "Where does Israel go from here?" In THE FUTURE OF ISRAEL, Sper explains:

· Why pursing the peace "process" is not in Israel’s interest.

· Why both the cause of, and the solution to, Israel’s problems and historical Jewish suffering are one in the same.

· The three things Israel must do immediately to insure her survival and provide security for her people.

· How and why a small fringe group hijacked Judaism and led the Jews to one tragedy after another.

Sper maintains that Israel is today without a vision of her future, her economy is in shambles and her people in despair. "Their hopes for peace have collapsed and there is a complete vacuum of ideas among Israel's leaders on a new direction, which will lead the country out of her seemingly endless tragedy." To end two millennia of Jewish suffering, Sper argues, Israel must reverse the course her leaders chose at Oslo and resume a commitment to the accumulation of Jewish power she began so promisingly in 1948. Sper presents a vision culminating in Israel as a major power and lays out a long-term plan for achieving this goal. Only by making this journey, argues Sper, can a permanent end to Jewish suffering be realized. With its radical new vision for the future of Israel and the Jewish people based on a remarkably realized plan for a country in turmoil, The Future of Israel is the rightful heir to Theodore Hertzl’s ground-breaking The Jewish State.

Sper bases his new vision on an ancient and once mainstream Jewish philosophy. It is a dynamic Judaism flowing from the Bible itself, a Judaism unafraid to engage and challenge the world, which the ancient historian Josephus called the "Fourth Philosophy." Sper explains how the abandonment of this genuine form of Judaism has led to centuries of tragedy for the Jewish people and why a return to this authentic Jewish philosophy is the only path to a secure Jewish future.

Meticulously researched and compellingly argued, this brilliant and original work boldly reinterprets Jewish history and theology to offer the Jewish people and Israel a strategy to reclaim its place as a great nation.
