Diet for a small planet by Frances Moore Lappé( Book )
63 editions published between 1971 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 2,730 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Overview: With the new emphasis on environmentalism in the 1990's, Lappe stresses how her philosophy remains valid, and how food remains the central issue through which to understand world politics. Twenty years ago and three million copies later, the extraordinary book that taught America the social and personal significance of a new way of eating is still a complete guide for eating well in the '90s. This 20th anniversary edition offers an all-new, even more fascinating philosophy on changing ourselves--and our world--by changing the way we eat

Une entreprise de réfutation point par point, sous forme de questions-réponses, de l'argument selon lequel la faim dans le monde résulte d'une croissance incontrôlée de la population et d'une production agricole insuffisante. Les auteurs expliquent comment le système actuel, basé uniquement sur des critères de rentabilité, aboutit à la suralimentation des riches et à la sous-alimentation des pauvres. Comme alternative, ils suggèrent entre autres l'application du principe de l'auto-suffisance de façon à ce que les besoins des populations locales passent avant les impératifs du commerce et du profit. Un des livres les plus importants des dernières années sur le sujet

Democracy's edge : choosing to save our country by bringing democracy to life by Frances Moore Lappé( Book )
8 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Democracy's Edge is a rousing battle cry that we can - and must - act now. From Jefferson to Eisenhower, presidents from both parties have warned us of the danger of letting a closed, narrow group of business and government officials concentrate power over our lives. Yet today, a small and unrepresentative group of people is making vital decisions for all of us." "But this crisis is only a symptom, Frances Moore Lappe argues. It's a symptom of thin democracy, something done to us or for us, not by or with us. Such democracy is always at risk of being stolen by private interests or extremist groups, left and right." "But there is a solution. The answer, says Lappe is Living Democracy, a powerful yet often invisible citizens' revolution surging in communities across America. It's not random, disjointed activism but the emergence of a new historical stage of democracy in which Americans realize that democracy isn't something we have but something we do. Either we live it or lose it, says Lappe."--BOOK JACKET
