Must Read
Noreena Hertz THE SILENT TAKEOVER, Heinemann, London 2001
Documents, in a readable format, the growing power of big business and new forms of protest in the light of the involvement of governments in supporting multinationals against their own constituents interests.
George Monbriot CAPTIVE STATE, Pan Macmillan, London 2001
Banned by the Swiss as subversive, this book is a damning account of the effects of market capitalism in the UK and suggests that the manipulation by multinational corporations of the US and UK governments and other governments may be the most serious threat to democracy on this planet.
Anita Roddick TAKE IT PERSONALLY, Harper Collins, London 2001
Subtitled; How Globalization affects you and powerful ways to challenge it, this book by Anita Roddick, famed founder of The Body Shop, combines many articles by people such as Aung San Suu Kyi, Ralph Nader, Naomi Klein and others. Brilliantly presented with colour photos and graphical layouts, easy to read and compelling content make this a must read.
John Pilger THE NEW RULERS OF THE WORLD, Verso, London 2002
You won't read about these issues in the newspaper, well hardly! Read how the media is manipulated and how the powerful stay that way; how a million people died in Indonesia as the price for being the World Bank's star pupil and a half a million children died from the embargo to "punish" Saddam in Iraq. (see above: Hidden Agendas)
Michael Moore STUPID WHITE MEN...and other sorry excuses for the State of the Nation!, Penguin, London 2002
Michael Moore, film-maker and TV satirist, investigates what is wrong with the USA. He suggests the UN should send in peace keepers to help restore democracy. This is the British edition with "a new introduction, Epilogue and minor text changes". The story of the book's near suppression makes fascinating reading. Also you have to go to Michael's website to read the stuff he wasn't allowed to put in the British (and Australian - my copy was printed here) edition! Biting sarcasm and wit, like Michael's films, makes you laugh, cry and get angry all at once! We know we live in an unfair world. Mike grabs you by the throat and shakes you out of your apathy. If this book doesn't do this for you, then you must be dead (or your heart turned to stone like many of our politicians and business leaders).
