Sie manipulieren uns mit ihren Werbetricks, bauen in ihre Produkte Sollbruchstellen ein und wenn wir etwas reparieren lassen wollen, sagen sie, dass es sich nicht mehr auszahlt. Wir spielen mit, weil es alle tun, und merken nicht, dass wir die Konzerne immer reicher machen und wir selbst die Dummen sind. Denn so bekommen wir zu schlechte Ware für zu viel Geld. Ein System, das auch noch die Umwelt belastet, egal, ob die neue Waschmaschine ein Ökoprogramm hat oder nicht. Denn das ist auch nur ein Trick.

The Price of Civilization
Author: Jeffrey D. Sachs
Publisher: Random House Canada
For the first time, Jeffrey Sachs, the pre-eminent economist of our times, turns his attention to his homeland, the United States, to reveal the stunning inadequacy of American-style capitalism and to offer a bold and ambitious plan to change it. Jeffrey Sachs has visited more than a hundred countries on five continents, invited to help diagnose and cure seemingly intractable economic problems. Now, in the wake of the worst recession in recent history, Sachs turns his focus on the United States. The complexity of the world economy means that the American form of capitalism, which has been exported around the globe, brought the world to the brink of the precipice--and it will do so again, if measures aren't taken to fix it. This will require not only government action but for US citizens to reach a consensus on their government's role in everyday life and on their basic values--hugely controversial issues in recent years. The scary thing is if they don't, it will affect us all. The good news is that Sachs, in this book, clearly and persuasively leads his readers to an understanding of what the common ground of reform can and should--indeed, must--be. From the Hardcover edition.
A powerful fable set in the early days of the Russian Revolution, Tarabas is the story of a Russian peasant who learns in his youth from a gypsy that it is his destiny to be both a murderer and saint. It is Roth's special gift that, in Tarabas's fulfillment of his tragic destiny, the larger movements of history find their perfect expression in the fate of one man.
Now, in the pages of Jim Tucker's Bilderberg Diary, Jim Tucker lays out, for the first time, his entire remarkable history of covering Bilderberg (and its Trilateral and CFR allies), literally infiltrating Bilderberg meetings, procuring their private documents, and working relentlessly to shine the spotlight of public scrutiny on Bilderberg's affairs. Tucker's prose, first-hand, folksy and colorful, will introduce you to the little-known arena of the Bilderberg elite. This volume is a memorable and panoramic journey that will lay bare the realities behind modern-day international power politics in a way that you've never seen before. And the book includes several representative lists of Bilderberg membership over the past several years, more than 80 fascinating on-the-spot photographs of the Bilderbergers in action and photo reproductions of actual Bilderberg documents secured by Tucker. Plus a fascinating Afterword by Willis A. Carto, the man who first suggested Tucker cover Bilderberg for The Spotlight newspaper, realizing what was happening behind closed doors at Bilderberg meetings was far more important, and sinister, than Bilderberg press releases were admitting. If you've ever heard the mass media claim that concerns about Bilderberg are "just some crazy conspiracy theory," you'll definitely think otherwise as you travel with Jim Tucker into the world of Bilderberg.
The New Prince
Author: Dick Morris
Publisher: Renaissance Books
Niccolo Machiavelli's The Prince has been one of the most widely read and quoted book about politics during the past five centuries. But in the democracies of the information age, new ideas are needed to make government prosper through the next century. Now, Dick Morris, who contributed significantly to President Clinton's reelection in 1996 and, during the previous two decades, helped many public officials (Democrats and Republicans alike) gain office, takes a hard look at our times and writes a how-to book for office-seekers, special-interest groups, and students of politics. In The New Prince, Morris advises candidates to adopt idealism as a strategy—not because of misguided altruism, but because it works. He tells politicians, advocacy groups, business leaders, and citizens how to promote their causes and get their jobs done effectively. And he offers insights into the character of the most remarkable political figures of our time and outlines what he believes will be the political agenda for the next century.

Sally Bongers, the distinguished Australian cinematographer, compiled these interviews while researching subjects for a documentary film on Enlightenment. Initially she sought out established spiritual teachers, but her emphasis changed to interviewing ordinary people who had experienced a shift of perception which, in the Eastern tradition, would be called Enlightenment or Liberation. She found men and women who still live their lives much as they had done before the realization, working and living in the everyday world. Seven of their stories were chosen for this book. Hearing these people talk about living with this understanding in the real world (not in an ice-cave somewhere!) confirmed the closeness of it all. These stories make it clear that Enlightenment can “happen” to anyone, regardless of so-called spiritual qualifications.
As climate change and extreme weather events increasingly threaten traditional landscapes and livelihoods of entire communities the need to study its impact on human migration and population displacement has never been greater. The Atlas of Environmental Migration is the first illustrated publication mapping this complex phenomenon. It clarifies terminology and concepts, draws a typology of migration related to environment and climate change, describes the multiple factors at play, explains the challenges, and highlights the opportunities related to this phenomenon. Through elaborate maps, diagrams, illustrations, case studies from all over the world based on the most updated international research findings, the Atlas guides the reader from the roots of environmental migration through to governance.
