THE INVISIBLE
WOMEN OF
WASHINGTON
/ Diana G. Collier
This fictional portrayal of lives of poor
women in SRO accommodations in
downtown Washington DC, blocks from
the Capitol, will make you laugh and
cry.  And it will teach you a great deal
about inner city poverty in America.

"In The Invisible Women of Washington,
novelist Diana G. Collier takes the
reader to the edge of the abyss...."
Bloomsbury Review

"Collier's novel is a work of literature,
not a leaden exposé of what we should
already know... it succeeds to a high
degree... I hope you will buy this book."
The Nation
DISCOVERING
AMERICA
AS IT IS

/ Valdas
Anelauskas
A monumental study of the
devastating effect American-style
capitalism was already having on the
American people during the
so-called "boom" years of the Clinton
era -- even before the systemic
ravages that have resulted from the
policies of George W. Bush.

"This is an extraordinary book,
especially startling not because it is
a diligently researched and scathing
critique of contemporary America, but
because it is written by a Soviet
dissident who arrived here with great
expectations and discovered a
sobering reality. The scope of the
book is breathtaking, a sweeping
survey, factually precise and
philosophically provocative, which
deserves to be compared to de
Tocqueville's 19th century classic. I
hope it will be widely read."
--Howard Zinn
HUMAN RIGHTS,
HUMAN PLIGHTS
IN A GLOBAL
VILLAGE
by Rob Buitenweg
Economic, social and cultural rights  
are intended to alleviate human
misery, and thereby enable people to  
live in dignity.  Though these rights ––
the right to adequate housing, to food,
to health(care) and to social security,
among others –– are protected under
the International Covenant on
Economic, Social and Cultural
Rights, they are often challenged as
lacking the clarity, substance and
enforceability of civil and political
rights.  This book puts paid to that
mistaken notion.
“Superbly argued and always
accessible this book is an essential
guide for everyone who is concerned
with human rights and human
development. No one gives a better
explanation of the importance and
indispensable value of socio-
economic human rights for our times.
A stimulating book and an
indispensable work of reference.”

Humanistics, The Netherlands
WHAT THE MARKET DOES
TO PEOPLE:  
Globalization,
Privatization and Poverty
/ David Macarov
"[T]his is a grim, demanding,
informative, distressing, and
controversial book. It is not a fanciful
or speculative appraisal, rather a
sobering assessment, by a seasoned
scholar, of the connection between the
global economy and basic human
security and dignity, and the myths
and power relations that perpetuate
exploitation and pauperism. This is
why people should read it "
Global Social Policy
"This book is written for those who
intuitively believe that globalization
and privatization are growing stronger
and more harmful, but who lack
well-defined and convincing
arguments that this is so. The book
will provide them with ammunition to
fight the battle against multinational
corporations and those private
organizations controlling worldwide
trade and communication -- that is,
for-profit organizations now profiting
from the welfare and protective
services that used to be in the hands
of public organizations."

This collection is a tour de force,

"a very good overview of key debates
on contemporary development
strategies and alternatives.  As a rule,
the chapters are devoted to state-
based strategies. However, there is
also material on relations between
states, classes and social
movements, and several chapters
provide
excellent and intriguing
critiques of development strategy
...."

Arnold August,  author of Democracy in

"confronts one of the most important political
and theoretical problems facing modern
society: how the national state can be
democratised in an era when transnational
corporations rule a global economy...The
authors’ approach helps to update national
liberation strategies common in the 1950s
and 1960s, addressing these questions in the
context of globalisation in a creative and
radical manner. Engaging with this book is
certainly time well spent."

Here’s some straight talk on unaffordable health care, unrepayable student

financial terrorism, the austerity hoax, banksters’ market-rigging thievery, and
the domestic police, media and legislative repression set to keep all that in
place.

Global
Capitalism
and the Crisis of
Democracy

Jerry Harris
Global capitalism has the market
dominating both government
and civil society. A successor
system must recognize the
dialectical relationships
between the state, markets and
civil society, seeking to balance
naturally occurring
contradictions through the
practice and renewal of
democratic institutions. The key
is structuring natural conflicts to
take place within democratic
outlets.
"This is an excellent book,
packed with meticulously-
documented facts, indicating
the disastrous direction that
global capitalism, dominated by
a new transnational capitalist
class, is taking us.  But, Harris
argues, “another world is
possible”--a genuinely
democratic, economically viable,
ecologically sustainable world.
Highly recommended!"

USURY:  
How Finance
Opened
the Door for
Capitalism
Then Swallowed It
Whole

Richard
Westra
Usury laid medieval society to
waste. Now, as the 21st century
begins, finance again has turned to
its dark side, using money to make
money with no socially redeeming
purpose.  Such is the endgame of
economies managed by capitalists
without capitalism.
"It is my hope that this book will be
widely read by scholars, politicians,
and all those who are troubled by
our global economy’s current
directions."
Robert  Albritton, Professor
Emeritus, York University
“Westra brilliantly dissects the
West-East sweep of over-
accumulated capital, allowing him
to put financialization in proper
perspective. If you tire of circling
around worsening inequality,
imperialism and other ‘idle-money’
symptoms of economic crisis, and
instead you want to drill down to
find root causes within capitalism’s
putrefying remnants, as Westra
puts it, this is a superb guidebook.”

Economy, University of the
Witwatersrand, Johannesburg
