Economic Reconstruction from the Bottom Up
In clear, accessible language, Brecher and Costello describe how people around the world have started challenging the New World Economy.

Boek cover Globalization from Below van Jeremy Brecher (Paperback)
The Power of Solidarity
World business leaders' greed-as-usual came to a dramatic halt last November when tens of thousands of protesters flooded the streets of Seattle and shut down the 1999 meeting of the World Trade Organization. This powerful but virtually unknown organization was spotlighted through coordinated actions by such diverse constituencies as environmental, labor, and human rights advocates, catching the attention of the world. The New York Times declared its amazement, ''The surprisingly large protests point to the emergence of a new and vocal coalition.'' According to the Times, that movement...

Boek cover In the Name of Democracy van Jeremy Brecher (Onbekend)
American War Crimes in Iraq and Beyond
A riveting documentary anthology that examines a deeply disturbing question: Is the United States guilty of war crimes in Iraq? Until recently, the possibility that the United States was responsible for war crimes seemed unthinkable to most Americans. But as previously suppressed information has started to emerge—photographs from Abu Ghraib; accounts of U.S. attacks on Iraqi hospitals, mosques, and residential neighborhoods; secret government reports defending unilateral aggression—Americans have begun an agonizing reappraisal of the Iraq war and the way in which their government has...

Boek cover Against Doom van Jeremy Brecher (Paperback)
A Climate Insurgency Manual
Late in 2015, nearly two hundred countries signed the Paris Agreement acknowledging their individual and collective duty to protect the earth&;s climate&;and willfully refused to perform that duty. In response to this institutional failure and to growing climate destruction, we are witnessing the birth of a global nonviolent constitutional insurgency. Against Doom: A Climate Insurgency Manual tells how to put strategy into action&;and how it can succeed. It is a handbook for halting global warming and restoring our climate&;a how-to for climate insurgents.

Boek cover Strike! van Jeremy Brecher (Onbekend)
Jeremy Brecher’s Strike! narrates the dramatic story of repeated, massive, and sometimes violent revolts by ordinary working people in America.

Encompassing the repeated repression of workers’ rebellions by company-sponsored violence, local police, state militias, and the U.S. Army and National Guard, it reveals a...

Boek cover Save the Humans? van Jeremy Brecher (Onbekend)
Common Preservation in Action
We the people of the world are creating the conditions for our own self-extermination, whether through the bang of a nuclear holocaust or the whimper of an expiring ecosphere.
