Memo for a Saner World, Bob Brown
2 Bob Brown Memo for a Saner World
Penguin Books 225017 Australia 2004 0143000349 / 9780143000341 Softcover Good Condition Over the years, Bob Brown has been assaulted, jailed, vilified and shot at for his stance on the environment and human rights. This is his account of the defining moments in that life of activism, from the famous Franklin River blockade to his parliamentary protest against George Bush - a few minutes that gave voice to what many Australians felt but had no way of saying. By turns inspiring, compassionate and outraged, this personal story of being green makes the key issues easily understood. If you're someone who avoids reading about the world because you think it's too depressing, here's the good news: it's worse if you don't know. While some of the facts Bob presents are less than cheerful, his message is powerfully hopeful. With Bob Brown and the Greens set to become even more influential in Australian life, Memo for a Saner World is an essential record of what he stands for. 281 pages. Light tanning to pages. Illustrated with colour photographs. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: World Affairs::Current Events; Environment & Ecology; ISBN: 0143000349.

Growth Fetish, Clive Hamilton
3 Clive Hamilton Growth Fetish
Allen & Unwin 231361 Australia 2003 1741140781 / 9781741140781 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket 'Right on target and badly needed.' Noam Chomsky 'Breaks new ground by asking us to think what a post-growth, environmentally stable society might actually be like...Clearly, stylishly written.' Hugh Stretton 'An incisive critique of how the global economic and political systems have turned us into the miserable rich. Whatever you choose to do and wherever you go, you will benefit from keeping as copy of Growth Fetish tucked up your sleeve.' Sydney Morning Herald 'This is a powerful statement about the failure of the rat-race society and the need for a new philosophy of sociable living.' Professor Richard Layard, London School of Economics For decades our political leaders and opinion makers have touted higher incomes as the way to a better future. Economic growth means better lives for us all. But after many years of sustained economic growth and increased personal incomes we must confront an awful fact: we aren't any happier. This is the great contradiction of modern politics. In this provocative new book, Clive Hamilton argues that, far from being the answer to our problems, growth fetishism and the marketing society lie at the heart of our social ills. They have corrupted our social priorities and political structures, and have created a profound sense of alienation among young and old. Growth Fetish is the first serious attempt at a politics of change for rich countries dominated by sicknesses of affluence, where the real yearning is not for more money but for authentic identity, and where the future lies in creating a society that promotes the things that really do improve our well-being. 262 pages. Slight crease on front cover. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: World Affairs::Current Events; Reference; ISBN: 1741140781. ISBN/EAN: 9781741140781.
