Alternatives to economic globalization : a better world is possible by International Forum on Globalization( )

26 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 1,808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The culmination of a five-year project by the International Forum on Globalization (IFG), this book presents an inspiring plan for moving toward more sustainable, humanistic models of economic prosperity with an emphasis on citizen democracies, local self-sufficiency, and ecological health. Areas of discussion include the ten core requirements for democratic societies as well as alternative systems of energy, agriculture, and manufacturing. Written by a premier group of 18 thinkers from around the world and edited by best-selling authors John Cavanagh and Jerry Mander, this revised and expanded edition represents the official consensus of the living democracy movement. Delving into the most compelling alternatives to globalization thus far, it features a chart on the effects of globalization and three entirely new chapters on the global balance of power, the media, and what ordinary people can do about globalization
The case against the global economy : and for a turn toward the local by Jerry Mander( Book )

56 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and French and held by 1,497 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 )

11 editions published between 1967 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 672 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 by Jerry Mander( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 520 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 )

6 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in French and Undetermined and held by 105 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
The SuperFerry chronicles : Hawaii's uprising against militarism, commercialism and the desecration of the earth by Koohan Paik( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fifteen hundred protestors line Kaua'i's pier. Dozens more leap onto surfboards, boogie boards, and canoes, risking their lives to stop the oncoming colossus: the high-speed Hawaii Superferry riding in on a wave of deception and collusion. The protesters block the ship, and force it back to Honolulu. But why such outrage?... Over a ferryboat? The Superferry Chronicles is a riveting tale of intrigue and corruption-and an inspiring popular uprising against rampant commercialization. Impeccably researched, The Chronicles exposes hidden connections to defense industries preparing for Pacific conflicts, and an ambitious governor pandering to powerful military investors. Her administration gives the mammoth catamaran-bigger than a football field-a free pass to blaze its way at 40 miles per hour through protected whale breeding grounds and transport dangerous invasive species to fragile ecosystems-despite stringent environmental laws and a unanimous Supreme Court stop-order. Central to the story, we hear directly from Hawaii's citizens fighting to protect their lands, and saying loud and clear, Enough is enough. Award-winning filmmaker Koohan Paik of Kaua'i and Jerry Mander, the patriarch of the antiglobalization movement (New York Times), are joined by military observers, legal experts, and environmental professionals, to tell this compelling David-and-Goliath saga of local heroism versus global powers, exposing universal crises playing out in a Pacific archipelago
