Hijacking America : how the religious and secular right changed what Americans think by Susan George( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Bush leaves the White House in January 2009 and the United States goes back to "normal", right? Wrong, argues Susan George in this fascinating, thorough and often chilling account of the decades-long transformation of American society and political culture. Using the four "Ms"--Money, media, marketing, management--but above all with a keen sense of mission, the American secular and religious right has made its "long march through the institutions" and changed the way Americans think. As the left went about its business in blissful ignorance, convinced that its policies, programmes and projects spoke for themselves and would always prevail; the right's well-oiled machine of foundations, lobbies, think-tanks, publications, political cadres, lawyers and activist organisations slowly and strategically took over. A broad alliance of neo-liberals, neo-conservatives and the religious right successfully manufactured a new common sense, assaulted Enlightenment values and targeted the top of society where culture is created and legitimized, because they knew that ideas have consequences--and not just in the United States. Hijacking America is that rarity of a book, a thoroughly researched page-turner. Clearly and gracefully written, it will enthral the general reader while providing plenty of factual nourishment for the student of politics, culture, religion or international relations. And for all those who hope for a different America in the future, the first step is to hold the present one up to the light and understand how it got that way."--Publisher description

The Avoidable famine( Visual )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the impact of changes in traditional farming methods on the economy of Sudan. When the Sudan was a colony of Great Britain, the best farm land was used to grow cotton but a drop in cotton prices in the 1970's dictated a return to traditional food crops, which made the Sudan self-sufficient in food. Then the International Monetary Fund insisted that the nation return to growing cotton as a condition for making loans to the Sudan. Cotton prices remained low and the nation was forced to import grain from the U.S.--thus pushing the Sudan deeper into debt while the people starved
Los usurpadores : cómo las empresas transnacionales toman el poder by Susan George( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lobistas al servicio de una empresa o de un sector industrial, ejecutivos de empresas trasnacionales, cuya cifra de negocios es superior a la suma del PIB de varios países en los que operan, instancias quasi estatales, cuya conexión tentacular se despliega más allá de las fronteras nacionales. Son los usurpadores que se introducen en los negocios del mundo a golpe de inversiones y de puertas giratorias, se infiltran en Naciones Unidas y, bajo la batuta de Davos, trabajan para crear un mundo a su imagen. Ellos son los que deciden el contenido de los tratados comerciales estratégicos, como el actual TTIP, negociados en el mayor secreto, y siempre bajo la mirada atenta de los representantes del sector privado. "Lectoras, lectores, espero que os sintáis adecuada y confiadamente informados sobre el poder ilegítimo que ha reptado hasta lo más hondo de nuestras instituciones y de nuestras vidas. El conocimiento es siempre el primer e indispensable antídoto cuando nos sentimos manipulados --¡que lo estamos!-- e impotentes. Sin el conocimiento nada podemos hacer, pero en sí mismo no es suficiente, es solo un primer paso. Este conocimiento debe servir para contribuir a crear movimientos sociales y apoyar campañas para cambiar la situación actual." Susan George
