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 786 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 )

20 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 552 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 454 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

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

"Seen through the eyes of activists, farmers, and journalists Waking the Green Tiger follows an extraordinary campaign to stop a huge dam project on the upper Yangtze river in southwestern China. Featuring astonishing archival footage never seen outside China, and interviews with a government insider and witnesses, the documentary also examines Chairman Mao's campaigns to conquer nature in the name of progress. An environmental movement takes root when a new environmental law is passed and for the first time in China's history, ordinary citizens have the democratic right to speak out and take part in government decisions. Activists test their freedom to challenge a dam. The movement they trigger could transform China."--Face to Face Media web site. Farmers from Xiaoshaba village along the Nu River Valley travel to villages along the Mekong River, which has already been flooded from the Manwan Dam. When they witness the poverty resulting from relocation, the farmers of the Nu River Valley realize they must protest the building of the dams on the Nu River. In the village of Shangri-la, villagers mobilize to protest the building of the dam at Tiger Leaping Gorge, the largest proposed dam of the project

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
