The first of its kind, this anthology of eighty international primary literary texts—poems, short stories, personal essays, testimonials, activist statements, and group-authored visions—illuminates Environmental Justice as a concept and a movement worldwide in a way that is accessible to students, scholars, and general readers. Also included are historical selections that ground contemporary pieces in a continuum of activist concern for the earth and human justice, a much-needed but seldom available perspective. Arts and humanities are crucial in the ongoing effort to achieve an ecologically sustainable and just world. Works of the human imagination provide analyses, articulations of experience, and positive visions of the future that no amount of statistics, data, charts, or graphs can offer because literature speaks not only to the intellect but also to our emotions. Creative literary work, which records human experience both past and present, has the power to warn, to persuade, and to inspire. Each is critical in the shared struggle for Environmental Justice.

This book is a comprehensive, up-to-date and thoughtful account of "work time reduction" which is being increasingly discussed and experimented with in many countries, particularly in Western Europe. The idea embraces an innovative range of possibilities, including a shorter working week, early retirement, and parental leave. The author argues that work time reduction can contribute to reducing ecological stress as an environmentally sound response to unemployment (some 35 million people are jobless in OECD countries) and by encouraging new notions of progress based on more free time rather than more material consumption. The author explores the political, economic, and cultural obstacles to be overcome.

This work proposes a framework based on the concept of a fair distribution of environmental space to include the diverse needs of North and South. Drawing on research in 38 countries, it aims to give an equitable basis for global development in order to achieve sustainable consumption by the year 2050. The environmental space approach seeks to explain the limitations of the global market economy as a tool of development and to give us the means to alter it in order to achieve a genuine quality of life, rather than simple economic growth. In addition, this book seeks to urge all countries and peoples to consider and evaluate the environmental space approach and to join in a movement towards sustainable production and consumption for the 21st century.

Our heritage is rooted in local cultures and environments. However, does modern communication and its international bias now threaten regional integrity? How do we combine global awareness with practical local action, and can heritage be exported from one place to another like Euro Disney? Also, how will future cultural and environmental policies be influenced by the principle of subsidiarity and Article 128 of the Maastricht Treaty? These are some of the questions and issues to be discussed by contributors from the Heritage Convention, and to be included in this collection of papers. Drawn from papers presented at The Robert Gordon University Heritage Convention in 1995, this volume addresses a range of questions and explores issues critical to the sustained use of the Earth's heritage and economic benefit of local communities.

To an increasing number of American families the CSA (community supported agriculture) is the answer to the globalization of our food supply. The premise is simple: create a partnership between local farmers and nearby consumers, who become members or subscribers in support of the farm. In exchange for paying in advance--at the beginning of the growing season, when the farm needs financing--CSA members receive the freshest, healthiest produce throughout the season and keep money, jobs, and farms in their own community. In this thoroughly revised and expanded edition of a Chelsea Green classic, authors Henderson and Van En provide new insight into making CSA not only a viable economic model, but the right choice for food lovers and farmers alike. Thinking and buying local is quickly moving from a novel idea to a mainstream activity. The groundbreaking first edition helped spark a movement and, with this revised edition, Sharing the Harvest is poised to lead the way toward a revitalized agriculture.

J'son's entire reality is about to change, whether he likes it or not. He discovers he can travel between worlds, and he awakens on a bizarre planet controlled by the tyrannical rule of the Temple Council. When he survives a drug-induced hallucination, he is given his mission by the mysterious Transcendentals. He is to save the planet of the Elohim from the machinations of the evil sorcerer B'el. With T'mar, his achingly beautiful fantasy girl; C'ton, an ancient, high-ranking wizard who renounces his position on the Council; and T'mer, a scientifically trained tech from the city-J'son must unlock the mystery of why the Dome is failing and where the crucial power reserves have gone before it is too late. The sun recedes and darkness consumes the land. Working with the Council's consent, J'son must merge with the planetary grid and stabilize the power fluctuations that are causing the Dome to collapse. But something goes horribly wrong, and he becomes trapped within the grid. T'mar, realizing her love for J'son, casts a heretical spell to retrieve his lost life force-and they both must now face unintended consequences. Under the leadership of C'ton, they barely escape the clutches of the corrupt Temple Council. Now they must journey outside the Dome through the toxic environment of the Wastelands, to make their stand at the castle of the great sorcerer B'el.
