Radical democracy by C. Douglas Lummis( )

26 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

C. Douglas Lummis reminds us that democracy literally means a political state in which the people (demos) have the power (kratia). The people referred to are not people of a certain class or gender or color. They are, in fact, the poorest and largest body of citizens. Democracy is and always has been the most radical proposal, and constitutes a critique of every sort of centralized power. Lummis distinguishes true democracy from the inequitable incarnations referred to in contemporary liberal usage. He weaves commentary on classic texts with personal anecdotes and reflections on current events. Writing from Japan and drawing on his own experience in the Philippines at the height of People's Power, Lummis brings a cross-cultural perspective to issues such as economic development and popular mobilization. He warns against the fallacy of associating free markets or the current world economic order with democracy and argues for transborder democratic action. Rejecting the ways in which technology imposes its own needs, Lummis asks what work would look like in a truly democratic society. He argues us to remember that democracy should mean a fundamental stance toward the world and toward one's fellow human beings. So understood, it offers an effective cure for what he terms "the social disease called political cynicism."

Fukushima meltdown : the world's first earthquake-tsunami-nuclear disaster by Takashi Hirose( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Takashi Hirose not only describes the comic-if-not-so-tragic series of fumbling errors that led to the meltdown at Fukushima, but also makes clear the absurdity of putting nuclear power plants anywhere on the earthquake and volcano prone Japanese archipelago --and by extension, anywhere in the world. This is the first translation into English of any book by this authoritative critic of nuclear power."--Back cover

In depth account of wartime and postwar history of Okinawa and the massive American military presence on the island, based on interviews and rare archival footage on the 1945 Battle of Okinawa, the 27-year American occupation and the ongoing struggles for peace of the local people up until the present.
