Presenting our eBook ...

Book Description

This new book, after two years’ discussion among 70 members in many countries, including the United States, Canada, Mexico, United Kingdom, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Mali, Australia, and New Zealand, looks at the root causes of global problems and points the way to solutions.

It explains the growing gap between rich and poor, offers routes to greater democracy, exposes the global corporate oligarchy, addresses the tyranny of the banking structure, details the concentrated control of media, explores spiritual approaches to sustainable living, and suggests solutions through civil society, alternative life styles, education, and useful information sources.

"Global Solutions is an impressive, well-researched and honest summary of our sorry global predicament…which provides…vehicles for achieving practical solutions…."
— John Bunzl of London, England, founder, International Simultaneous Policy Organisation

“I think that humane and concerned world citizens, of all faiths or none, can welcome this book's commitment to our common quest for sensitive celebration of humanity and our world with justice and mature tolerance.”
— Doug Everingham, former Australian Minister for Health

“I have to say WOW! What a wonderful job you all did with it and what a treasure of resources listed at the end.”
— Lugene Trefsger, Rowan University, New Jersey


What a cool idea - 70 contributors from around the world!

"I worry about what can be done about all the problems in the world. This book looks at it from a number of viewpoints and perspectives. It explains how the ordinary people are exploited by others and deprived of democratic rights. It has a lot of good ideas about what to do, and the last chapter is full of resources--other books and websites--if you care where humanity and the environment are going."

Angela Brown from Salt Lake City, Utah (USA), October 9, 2003 at Amazon.com
