Book Description :

* Takes an interdisciplinary approach to interpreting global civil society * Contributors are some of the leading theoreticians in the field * A sound handbook for activism The term "global civil society" has become a catchphrase of our times. But efforts to define and interpret what global civil society actually is have led to ambiguity and dispute. This major work of scholarship and advocacy pierces through the generalizations and debates. It presents cogent examples of groups within civil society--from the Seattle and Genoa protesters to transnational grassroots movements, such as Slum/Shack Dwellers International--that are creatively meeting the challenges and opportunities of an increasingly interconnected world. The contributors offer clarity and the hope that another world is possible--one in which civil society’s global networks can effectively create a free, fair, and just global order. Scholars, students, and anyone interested in understanding new forces influencing contemporary world politics will want to have this book on their shelves.

Book Description :

Are you an asshole? Yes? No? How do you know either way?Being an asshole has a different meaning to different people. It varies by social class, race, gender, personality, mood, etc. Because of this, it can be a difficult thing to pin down, but in general, following the basic rules of applying common sense to most situations and being decent towards others will usually render you "asshole-free". Confused? You're not alone. People by the millions walk around every day performing actions they deem completely acceptable; Never cognizant of the fact that they just became a total asshole to someone around them. Maybe they ARE aware and just don't give a crap. Those that fall into the latter category are probably too far gone to be saved but if YOU care, you should definitely read this book. "Don't Be An Asshole!" defines the specific types of assholes you may encounter and tries to examine why some people become the assholes they are, how to cope with them and what you can do (or not do) to make sure you don't become one yourself. It lists many a situation and place where asshole behavior is prevalent so that you can either prepare yourself or avoid them altogether. Still confused? Maybe this will help. Imagine a book that could help you learn:How to deal with stress Because asshole behavior stresses us out! What's better for stress than having your feelings justified by a complete stranger and having a laugh or two while you're at it? How to deal with difficult people The term "difficult people" itself implies people who are assholes. C'mon, if they weren't being assholes, would anyone think they are "difficult"? I can think of a lot of "difficult" people right now and every last one of them is an asshole. This group can include friends, employees, employers or just complete idiots. How to deal with conflict resolution There is no other cross section of society that is more intimately familiar with conflict than the asshole crowd. They can find or initiate conflict anywhere. Ballgames, the movies, church, online, in your bedroom... ANYWHERE. Do you wanna be caught helpless when you find yourself in a conflict with one of these good mood oppressors? You could even just hand them a copy of this very book and call it a day. They'll get the point. Will this book help you find your soul-mate, find a better job, lose weight, increase your penis size or otherwise change your life?Probably not. Will it give you the power to passive aggressively make your feelings known to jerks in your life?You betcha! Just hand them a copy and a smile. Will it make you a star at the next "white elephant" gift-swapping, holiday party?Fo shizzle! Miss Mason-Jar-Wine-Glass ain't gonna have nothin' on you next year. Life changing? No. Fun as all get-out? Yup! "Don't Be An Asshole!" - Part comedy, part therapy. A tongue-in-cheek look at why, where and how people act like assholes and what we can do to make sure we're not one of them.

Book Description :

Filled with quotes from Bob Marley’s speeches, interviews, and writings, this collection is sure to resonate with fans of his music and political activism, and a new generation at a time when we need exemplary heroes. Redemption has many meanings, but there is one definition that embodies the spirit of Bob Marley’s beliefs and music: to reform, or to change for the better. Forty years after the release of his iconic “Redemption Song,” his desire to make the world a better place through mental and spiritual emancipation—important first steps to physical emancipation for the larger community—remains powerful and vital to this day. Using Marley’s own words from interviews and his powerful song lyrics, his eldest daughter, Cedella Marley, creates a powerful narrative about the hard but rewarding path to redemption.

Book Description :

Building A Better World is a classic resource manual for anyone who wants to work for change in our world. Dave Andrews urges us to act on our growing sense of distress about the way the world is and to take simple, radical-yet-practical steps to explore the possibility of building a new world out of the ruins of the old - creating safe sustainable spaces, where everyone is accepted as person in their own right, where people are respected for both their similarities and their differences, where there is sense of responsibility for welfare of each person, where every person has the right to participate in the decisions that impact on their lives, and where communities are committed to doing justice to the most marginalised and disadvantaged in society. As you would expect from a landmark do-it-yourself handbook written by a practitioner for practitioners, Building A Better World is filled from cover to cover with personal stories, professional tips, inspiring quotes, empowering anecdotes and lots of practice wisdom about what works and what doesn’t work in overcoming apathy, mobilising activity, subverting bureaucracies, and utilizing first order and second order strategies in the struggle to bring about a truly “PEACE”ful world - characterised by “P”articipatory politics and “E”quitable economics with “A”ppropriate technologies in “C”onscientized communities, exercising “E”nvironmental responsibilities.

Book Description :

Many scientific studies and spiritual teachings suggest that being in a healthy lifelong love relationship, raising conscious children, and living on purpose are fundamental both for our own long-term well-being as well as for that of future generations, so that we and they can flourish in all respects materially, physically, sexually, mentally, psychologically, and spiritually.Yet in today s modern and postmodern societies, an increasing number of people are not in such relationships, don t have children, and pursue an individualistic hedonistic lifestyle. Sadly, this individualism has been contributing to the ongoing socioeconomic and environmental problems that humanity is creating, rather than being part of their solution.The sexual selection process has gone completely out of whack, more people live alone, most couples procreate way below sustainable rates. As a consequence, we may become the next endangered species if we don t change our way of relating with each other and the world. What happened? Many people moved from we to me, or loving themselves more than others, lost touch with what their life s purpose is beyond enjoying life to the fullest, and didn t acquire the relationship skills to master the complexities of love in the twenty-first century.While our personal relationships and global challenges are constantly increasing in complexity, more people are looking for easy answers to address these problems. This simplistic approach is obviously not working.On the other hand, most of the complex meta-models that are offered to solve the wicked problems that humanity is facing are rarely effective either, as they require a Ph.D.-level grasp of philosophical and scientific subtleties just to be understood. Ironically, these complex perspectives routinely overlook the basic fact that integrating the fundamental human dimensions of sex, purpose, love, and sustainable procreation is an essential prerequisite for creating the eudaimonic world that the creators of these models envision.It is the purpose of this book to remedy these two problems by, on the one hand, providing a practical road map or model (the Integral Love Relationship model) that is simple enough to be fully grasped and put into action by singles and couples of all walks of life and educational levels, and on the other, by presenting a vision that is comprehensive enough to effectively address the relational and global challenges that humanity is facing in the twenty-first century.Without such a model, we cannot even see what kind of love relationships are possible and necessary for our own well-being, and for the creation of a peaceful and sustainable world in which current and future generations can flourish.My intention is to inspire singles and couples to realize their full healing and growth potentials to co-create the kind of love relationships that are not only personally satisfying, but that also radiate their love outward in growing concentric rings to embrace all of humanity.In the four parts of this book, you find a practical application of Ken Wilber s acclaimed Integral theory of human growth and potentials to (1) co-creating a fulfilling sexual relationship, (2) sharing your deepest purpose with your partner, (3) deeply loving your partner and what is uniquely co-created between the two of you at all levels of your being, and (4) understanding why co-creation and procreation in Integral love relationships matter in the grand scheme of things. Or, in short, it is a book about sex, purpose, love, and creating a better world.

Book Description :

The Fourth Industrial Revolution is changing everything - from the way we relate to each other, to the work we do, the way our economies work, and what it means to be human. We cannot let the brave new world that technology is currently creating simply emerge. All of us need to help shape the future we want to live in. But what do we need to know and do to achieve this? In Shaping the Fourth Industrial Revolution, Klaus Schwab explores how people from all backgrounds and sectors can influence the way that technology transforms our world. Drawing on contributions by more than 200 of the world's leading technology, economic and sociological experts to present a practical guide for citizens, business leaders, social influencers and policy-makers this book outlines the most important dynamics of the technology revolution, highlights important stakeholders that are often overlooked in our discussion of the latest scientific breakthroughs, and explores 12 different technology areas central to the future of humanity. Emerging technologies are not predetermined forces out of our control, nor are they simple tools with known impacts and consequences. The exciting capabilities provided by artificial intelligence, distributed ledger systems and cryptocurrencies, advanced materials and biotechnologies are already transforming society. The actions we take today - and those we don't - will quickly become embedded in ever-more powerful technologies that surround us and will, very soon, become an integral part of us. By connecting the dots across a range of often-misunderstood technologies, and by exploring the practical steps that individuals, businesses and governments can take, Shaping the Fourth Industrial Revolution helps equip readers to shape a truly desirable future at a time of great uncertainty and change.

Book Description :

We are in the midst of a global crisis. This is not just danger: it is opportunity. With the new spirit arising in national and international politics, we can join together and seize the opportunity to create a better world. To sit with folded hands, waiting for the crisis to take its course is to entrust our destiny to the vagaries of fortune. To go back to where we were is not advisable, and may not even be possible. But attempting to go forward is a realistic task. The outcome of the global crisis is not foreclosed; it is sensitive to our intentions, actions and aspirations. The global crisis may prove to be a blessing in disguise. We have to cope with its dangers, but we can seize the opportunity it offers for creating a more united and sustainable world for ourselves and our children. The Worldshift Manual presented in this book is a practical guide to build a better world. It tells us how we can build it, and what the role of each of us is in building it. This is essential information in these critical times. "How We Can Build a Better World: The Worldshift Manual is a perfect blend of rock-solid science, spiritual philosophy and common sense woven into a practical guide to life in the post-pandemic world!" --Gregg Braden, author of The Wisdom Codes

Book Description :

In this debut collection of essays and poetry, musician, speaker, and activist Propaganda inspires us to create a better, more equitable world. “If we get to make the very cultures that shape who we are, then let us remake them in the best way possible.” In this deep, challenging, and thoughtful book, Propaganda looks at the ways in which our world is broken. Using the metaphor of terraforming—creating a livable world out of an inhospitable one—he shows how we can begin to reshape our homes, friendships, communities, and politics. In this transformative time—when we are redefining what a truly just and equitable world looks like, and reflecting on the work that needs to be done both in our spiritual and secular lives—Propaganda rallies readers to create that just world. He sheds light on how nefarious origin stories have skewed our views of ourselves and others and allowed gross injustices, and demonstrates how great storytelling and excellent art can create and shape new perspectives of the world and make all of us better.
