The case against the global economy : and for a turn toward the local by Jerry Mander( Book )

44 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and Italian and held by 1,482 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Expressed in such new institutions as GATT, NAFTA, the World Trade Organizations, and Maastricht, as well as by the development schemes of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, economic globalization has been bulldozed through legislative bodies throughout the world, with scant public debate or discourse." "These tremendous changes are hailed by their backers as leading to a new era or prosperity and peace, but is this true?" "Now, for the first time, we have a comprehensive point-by-point analysis of the workings of the global economy, its premises, and its dire implications told by more than forty of the world's leading social, environmental, and economic thinkers from the America's, Europe, Asia, and the Pacific. They charge that free trade and economic globalization create exactly the opposite results from what is promised." "Each of the forty-three chapters in The Case Against the Global Economy takes one part of the story and delves into it, to show both the root assumptions of globalism and its multiple failures. In the end, it is clear that we need to reverse course; away from the global toward a revitalization of local political and economic control, self-sufficiency, and ecological health."--Jacket

The great international paper airplane book by Jerry Mander( Book )

36 editions published between 1967 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 818 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paper airplanes as serious science? No longer shamefully relegated to the back rows of elementary-school sports stadiums, paper airplanes come into their own with this amusing-and instructive-book. The Great International Paper Airplane Book documents the proceedings of the first (and possibly only) International Paper Airplane Competition conducted by Scientific American. In addition to the behind-the-scenes story and official records of the Competition, readers will discover intriguing mini-essays on the historical, aesthetic, technological, and folkloric aspects of the paper airplane and on its startling implications for the future of aviation. Best of all, there are dozens of cut-fold-and-fly-them-yourself planes to experiment with. Combining real science with outright fun, this book appeals to paper airplane enthusiasts and would-be aviators of every age
Paradigm wars : indigenous peoples' resistance to globalization( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Author and cultural critic Jerry Mander and coeditor Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, a leader of the global indigenous peoples movement and chair of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, have gathered an impressive international roster of contributors to document the momentous collision of worldviews that pits the forces of economic globalization against the Earth's surviving indigenous peoples. Many of the planet's dwindling resources are located on lands inhabited by native communities. This source explores the effect that The World Trade Organization and other global structures have affected these native lands. Paradigm Wars is the first major work to comprehensively illuminate this situation. In firsthand reports by twenty-five indigenous and nonindigenous writers, the book details the devastating impacts of extractive industries and bioprospecting, the degrading of cultural artifacts and languages, even the damage done by some well-meaning conservation groups. The book also highlights how indigenous communities are strongly resisting this onslaught, often with amazing success. Anyone concerned with environmental or social justice will find inspiration in their resistance

Le Procès de la mondialisation( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in French and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La croyance au progrès nous habite au point qu'il est inconcevable de ne pas aller de l'avant. Ainsi nous sommes embarqués sur un bolide qui semble ne plus avoir ni marche arrière, ni frein, ni conducteur. Son moteur? La mondialisation libérale. Son but? La marchandisation du monde. Ses effets? La crise de la vache folle, les errements des organismes génétiquement modifiés, l'instabilité économique, le réchauffement de la terre, les terribles atteintes à l'environnement ... Le présent ouvrage, d'une remarquable richesse, réunit les plus grands spécialistes mondiaux de tous les domaines impliqués. Il étudie les différents processus de la mondialisation et son impact sur les aspects de la vie : aggravation de la pauvreté et de l'exclusion, démantèlement des économies locales, homogénéisation de la culture, menaces sur les milieux naturels, sur la santé, sur la diversité biologique, sur les prcessus démocratiques ... Menage également sur l'indépendance des pays lorsqu'on sait le néo-colonisalisme que véhiculent à la fois les transnationales et des institutions comme le FMI, la Banque Mondiale ou l'OMC. Il dénonce aussi les fausses panacées et propose de vraies solutions. Un livre fondamental qui a valeur de prise de conscience : il est urgent, si nous ne voulons pas risquer la grande implosion, de faire marche arrière, de remettre l'économie là où elle aurait toujours dû rester : au service de l'homme. "Le procès de la mondialisation" a reçu, aux Etats-Unis, le prix du meilleur livre politique de l'année
