Rebels against the future : the Luddites and their war on the Industrial Revolution : lessons for the computer age by Kirkpatrick Sale ( Book )
19 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 1,318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the story of a bold uprising by the earliest victims of the first Industrial Revolution, viewed from the perspective of today's second Industrial Revolution, a vivid reminder that the current turmoil, driven by rapidly developing technologies and the global economy, is every bit as disruptive as the one created by the steam engine and laissez-faire. Rebels Against the Future is a work of careful scholarship, but it is also an exciting tale of people whose resistance to technology was so dramatic that their name has entered our vernacular. "Luddite" today refers to anyone unmoved by laptop computers and cellular phones, but this book reminds us that the Luddites were in fact real people, English working men who saw their livelihoods and homes, their communities and countryside, destroyed by the onrush of industrial capitalism

The fire of his genius : Robert Fulton and the American dream by Kirkpatrick Sale ( Book )
6 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 951 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"None of the well-dressed crowd that gathered on the Hudson River side of Lower Manhattan on the hot afternoon of August 17, 1808, could have known the importance of the object they had come to see and, mostly, deride: Robert Fulton's new steamboat, the North River, the boat that is frequently - and wrongly - remembered as the Clermont. But, as Kirkpatrick Sale shows in this biography of Fulton, the North River's successful four-day round-trip to Albany proved a technology that would transform nineteenth-century America, open up the interior to huge waves of settlers, create and sustain industrial and plantation economies in the nation's heartland, and destroy the remaining Indian civilizations and most of the wild lands on which they depended. The North River's four-day trip introduced the machines and culture that marked the birth of the Industrial Revolution in America. The Fire of His Genius tells the story of the extraordinarily driven and ambitious inventor who brought all this about, probing into the undoubted genius of his mind but, too, laying bare the darker side of the man - and the darker side of the American dream that inspired him."--BOOK JACKET

The green revolution : the American environmental movement, 1962-1992 by Kirkpatrick Sale ( Book )
10 editions published between 1993 and 2001 in English and held by 929 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Green Revolution recaptures the past thirty years of one of the most powerful movements in American history. The concern for the environment goes back more than a century, surely, but Kirkpatrick Sale shows that not until 1962, when Rachel Carson's Silent Spring electrified the country, did we begin to realize the terrible danger of man-made threats to our natural world. Our national environmental organizations and leading scientists have given us a new lexicon: acid rain, toxic wastes, biodiversity, the greenhouse effect. Even the word "green" has taken on a new meaning. Tragic events - at Bhopal, Love Canal, Three Mile Island, Chernobyl - that once would have been thought of as ephemeral are unforgettable warnings. Congress has responded with major legislation to protect the land, our forests, wildlife, water, and the air we breathe. Even so, as Sale reminds us, these years have not been an unmitigated triumph. The perils to the earth remain and in some ways are even more ominous
After Eden : the evolution of human domination by Kirkpatrick Sale ( Book )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In After Eden, Kirkpatrick Sale answers these questions in a radically new way. Integrating research in paleontology, archaeology, and anthropology, he points to the beginning of big-game hunting as the origin of Homo sapiens' estrangement from the natural world. Sale contends that a new, recognizably modern human culture based on the hunting of large animals developed in Africa some 70,000 years ago in response to a fierce plunge in worldwide temperature triggered by an enormous volcanic explosion in Asia. Tracing the migration of populations and the development of hunting thousands of years forward in time, he shows that hunting became increasingly adversarial in relation to the environment as people fought over scarce prey during Europe's glacial period between 35,000 and 10,000 years ago. By the end of that era, humans' idea that they were the superior species on the planet, free to exploit other species toward their own ends, was well established. Sale asserts that vestiges of a more ecologically sound way of life do exist today, offering redemptive possibilities for ourselves and for the planet."--Jacket

The 35 articles of impeachment and the case for prosecuting George W. Bush by Dennis J Kucinich ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Several books have argued a hypothetical case for impeaching George W. Bush, but Congressman Dennis Kucinich grabbed the bull by the horns and put forward 35 Articles of Impeachment before Congress in June 2008. This book presents all of Kucinich’s Articles along with supplementary material that cannot be found in the Congressional Record. We learn from investigator David Swanson (who assisted Kucinich with his Articles of Impeachment) that when George Bush and his cabinet leave office, the case for his impeachment is still necessary and possible, and the case for the prosecution of his crimes remains quite open. For this book, Dennis Kucinich provides a new foreword and David Swanson discusses a number of other prosecutable crimes that didn’t make Kucinich’s final cut. Federal prosecutor and author Elizabeth de la Vega ( United States v. George W. Bush et al. ) contributes an annotated list of criminal violations in the Articles. Vincent Bugliosi’s best-selling The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder addresses only one of Bush’s crimes, while Dennis Kucinich’s 35 Articles of Impeachment fully opens the can of worms, proving a case against dozens of executive crimes. Dennis Kucinich is the former mayor of Cleveland and has represented the Tenth District of Ohio for the United States House of Representatives since 1996. He was also a candidate for the Democratic nominee for president in the 2004 and 2008 elections

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The volume documents, and makes an original contribution to, an astonishing period in twentieth-century philosophy_the progress of Arne Naess's ecophilosophy from its inception to the present. It includes Naess's most crucial polemics with leading thinkers, drawn from sources as diverse as scholarly articles, correspondence, TV interviews and unpublished exchanges. The book testifies to the skeptical and self-correcting aspects of Naess's vision, which has deepened and broadened to include third world and feminist perspectives. Philosophical Dialogues is an essential addition to the literature
