Susan George presents her new book:
Another World is possible if...

Participants in the worldwide citizens' movement for social change
and global justice like to proclaim  that "Another World Is
Possible." But is it? To this popular slogan, Susan George adds a
cautionary "If," and proposes how we can indeed reach that Other
World.

Shifting the balance of power in favour of citizens takes a hard-
headed understanding of globalization, knowledge of the
adversaries who prevent change, intelligent organization, and
exciting yet practical proposals and strategic thinking. In clear and
straightforward prose, drawing on her thirty years of scholarship in
the service of social change as well as decades of participation in
social movements, George cautions against pitfalls such as
violence or basing one's actions on all-too-common illusions.

Whether you are a seasoned campaigner and confirmed "world-
changer," someone who wonders how you can join in the growing
citizens' movement, or someone who simply wants to know what
this movement is about, this book is for you. You will discover that
we are not condemned to glaring North-South inequalities, obscene
wealth gaps, environmental destruction or inordinate power
remaining in the hands of a small minority, if . . .
