The Amazon rain forest covers more than five million square kilometers, amid the territories of nine different nations. It represents over half of the planet's remaining rain forest. Is it truly in peril? What steps are necessary to save it? To understand the future of Amazonia, one must know how its history was forged: in the eras of large pre-Columbian populations, in the gold rush of conquistadors, in centuries of slavery, in the schemes of Brazil's military dictators in the 1960s and 1970s, and in new globalized economies where Brazilian soy and beef now dominate, while the market in carbo

Five days that shook the world : Seattle and beyond by Alexander Cockburn( Book )
4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In October 1999, fifty thousand citizens occupied the streets in a successful effort to shut down the World Trade Organization's ministerial meeting. Trade unionists, environmentalists, human rights advocates and farmers converged on Seattle to denounce the new global economy. Street corners were occupied by irate French farmers, Earth First!ers locked themselves to hotel doors to prevent WTO delegates from exiting, the convention center was circled by a human chain, and black-clad anarchists roamed the streets, smashing the windows of Gap, Niketown, and the Bank of America. The Seattle cops responded fiercely, saturating the air with tear gas, attacking demonstrators with riot clubs, rubber bullets, and pepper spray. When the smoke and gas cleared, the protesters had prevailed: the WTO talks had collapsed." "Five Days That Shook the World takes you onto the streets of Seattle with on-the-spot reporting and photographs. But it also looks at the broader issues raised by the protest: the secretive and undemocratic practice of the WTO, the trampling on rights to assembly and free speech by deploying the military to put down protest, and the menace to individual liberties of globalization and offshore government."--Jacket

A colossal wreck : a road trip through political scandal, corruption, and American culture by Alexander Cockburn( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Alexander Cockburn was one of the most influential journalists of his generation. As the Atlantic noted, he was a towering figure who 'would say all the outrageous things his bland counterparts lacked the wit, courage, erudition, or epater-spirit to utter on their own.' In A Colossal Wreck, written prior to his death in July 2012, Cockburn reveals his great literary spirit, incisive reading of the situation, and campaigning vim into a single volume that will undoubtedly be seen as his masterpiece. Whether ruthlessly exposing the hypocrisy of Washington from Clinton to Obama, pricking the pomposity of those in power, or tirelessly defending the rights of the oppressed or silenced, Cockburn was the most gifted contrarian of his generation"--
