Mao's war against nature : politics and the environment in Revolutionary China by Judith Shapiro( Book )

18 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In clear and compelling prose, Judith Shapiro relates the great, untold story of China in the Mao years - the devastating impact of Maoist politics on China's environment. Under Mao, the traditional Chinese ideal of "Harmony between the Heavens and Humankind" was abrogated in favor of Mao's insistence that "Man Must Conquer Nature." Mao and the Chinese Communist Party's "war" to bend the physical world to human will often had disastrous consequences for both human beings and the natural environment. Mao's War Against Nature argues that the abuse of people and the abuse of nature are often linked."--Jacket

China's environmental challenges by Judith Shapiro( Book )

23 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

China's huge environmental challenges are significant for us all. They affect not only the health and well-being of China but the very future of the planet. In the second edition of this acclaimed, trailblazing book, noted China specialist and environmentalist Judith Shapiro investigates China's struggle to achieve sustainable development against a backdrop of acute rural poverty and soaring middle class consumption. Using five core analytical concepts to explore the complexities of this struggle - the implications of globalization, the challenges of governance; contested national identity, the evolution of civil society, and problems of environmental justice and displacement of environmental harm - Shapiro poses a number of pressing questions: Can the Chinese people equitably achieve the higher living standards enjoyed in the developed world' Are China's environmental problems so severe that they may shake the government's stability, legitimacy and control' To what extent are China's environmental problems due to world-wide patterns of consumption' Does China's rise bode ill for the displacement of environmental harm to other parts of the world' And in a world of increasing limits on resources, how can we build a system in which people enjoy equal access to resources without taking them from successive generations, from the vulnerable, or from other species' China and the planet are at a pivotal moment; transformation to a more sustainable development model is still possible. But - as Shapiro persuasively argues - doing so will require humility, creativity, and a rejection of business as usual. The window of opportunity will not be open much longer
Lifechanges : how women can make courageous choices by Joan Hatch Lennox( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A self-help manual for the "older woman"--one who is experiencing major and minor changes in her life, who is on the "threshold" of some turning point. The authors urge women to continually reevaluate their priorities as they grow older, to be always open to new experiences and opportunities. Lennox and Shapiro offer step-by-step guidance for making the right choices and for taking full responsibility in such matters as finances, body care, personal relationships, traveling, and the prospect of living alone. Solid self-awareness advice for public library shelves."--Jane Jurgens

Waking the Green Tiger( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Waking the Green Tiger tells the dramatic story of the rise of the first major grassroots environmental movement in China, a significant development that could reshape the country. Seen through the eyes of farmers, journalists, activists and a former government insider, the film traces the historical evolution of the movement and highlights an extraordinary campaign to stop a huge dam project slated for the Upper Yangtze River in southern China. Featuring archival footage never seen outside China, and interviews with insiders and witnesses, the documentary also portrays the earlier history of Chairman Mao's campaigns to conquer nature in the name of progress. Mao mobilized millions of people in campaigns that reshaped China's landscape, destroyed lakes, forests and grasslands, and unleashed dust storms. Despite the evident consequences, critics of this approach were silenced for decades. The green movement emerged when a new environmental impact law was passed in 2004. For the first time in China's history, ordinary citizens gained the right to speak out and take part in government decisions. Green activism grew into a larger movement as local villagers and urban activists joined forces to oppose a massive new dam at Tiger Leaping Gorge on the Upper Yangtze that would have displaced 100,000 people. Their extraordinary campaign is a primary focus of the film. Waking the Green Tiger also gained unprecedented access to the former director of China's Environmental Protection Agency, Qu Geping, whose years of work inside the government laid the foundation for environmental protection in China. Qu provides a candid look at the state of the environment in China from Mao until now, and discusses how environmental law and the green movement have a key role to play in the evolution of democracy in China

Ökonomie im Kalten Krieg by Bernd Greiner( )

1 edition published in 2011 in German and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

HauptbeschreibungAllein die Zahlen übersteigen unser Vorstellungsvermögen. Dutzende von Billionen Dollar gaben Ost und West für ihren Kalten Krieg aus - um heiße Kriege abschrecken oder gewinnen zu können, um im Wettlauf der Gesellschaftssysteme die Oberhand zu behalten oder um Schlüsselregionen in der Dritten Welt auf ihre Seite zu ziehen. Über die Folgen streiten Ökonomen und Wirtschaftshistoriker bis heute: Hat man es mit einer Ressourcenvernichtung in der Größenordnung eines Weltkrieges zu tun? Oder kamen diese Ausgaben doch der wirtschaftlichen und gesellschaftlichen Entwicklung zugute? W
