  3. The Climate Majority by Leo Barasi

    The Climate Majority by Leo Barasi

    Starting at: £9.99

    View details »
    The Climate Majority is not about the climate deniers or the climate activists. It's about apathy, about those who don't talk about global warming - the billions of people who have heard plenty about climate change and acknowledge there's a problem, but who are just not engaged enough to stimulate the change required to stop it. 'Apathy is, arguably, the greatest obstacle facing action on climate change. Amid all the noise generated by the climate debate, Barasi's book shines a much-needed light on this oft-forgotten topic and, crucially, suggests a compelling way forward to overcome it.' Leo Hickman, editor of Carbon Brief Paperback: 200 pages Size: 13.8 x 2.2 x 21.6 cm   Learn More

    We urgently need to legalize and regulate drugs – this book explains why, and how to do it. 'Of all mankind’s self-inflicted wounds, ‘the war on drugs’ must be one of the most catastrophic . This passionate, articulate, and numerate statement of the case for legalising drugs could not be bettered. I hope it has the wide readership, and receives the careful attention, it deserves.

  9. The Bleeding Edge by Bob Hughes

    The Bleeding Edge by Bob Hughes

    Starting at: £10.99

    View details »
    Capitalism likes us to believe in the steady, inevitable march of progress, from the abacus to the iPad. But the historical record tells of innumerable roads not taken, all of which could have led to better worlds, and still can. We live in a world mad drunk on technology and political stupidity. Bob Hughes’ new book says more about this poisonous combination – its causes, consequences, and possible cures – than anything I have previously read. This is an ambitious and important book. - Annie Bonny, Pirate blog. Hughes nails inequality to the wall with precision and passion. He weaves together multiple strands to make the case against inequality, from economics through anthropology; from evolutionary theory through social epidemiology. Then, once he has constructed his airtight logic, he colors it in with the emotional dimensions of life lived under oppressive hierarchy - or empowering egalitarianism. Hughes' book dares us to stop begging for half-measures and instead demand our human birthright: full social and economic equality! - Deborah S. Rogers , PhD President, Initiative for Equality Affiliated Researcher, Stanford University, Institute for Research in the Social Sciences.   Learn More

"Here is a book which details - with irrefutable evidence - both the damage caused by inequality, and the benefits we all derive from living in more equal societies. We should all learn from it - and, above all else, act on it." - Owen Jones.

This optimistic book is a pleasure to read, writes Natasha Codiroli Mcmaster, and encourages us to see greater equality – and its social benefits – as being within our reach.
