We the peoples of Europe by Susan George( )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is the EU Constitution dead in the water? Although it may have disappeared out of the headlines for a while, the idea of having a binding EU Constitution still lies at the heart of future plans for the European Union. Ordinary people will be able to vote on the issue: but is there really a widespread understanding of what the Constitution would actually entail? Leading writer and anti-globalisation activist Susan George presents a succinct analysis of what is at stake for all peoples of Europe. How will the constitution affect our lives, and who does it really empower? Will it be the politicians and corporations that benefit? Will it involve much closer political alignment between all EU countries, and if it does then what does our future look like? Written with clarity and authority, this book will help you make up your own mind

Faith and credit : the World Bank's secular empire by Susan George( Book )

17 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In its fifty years of existence, the World Bank has influenced more lives in the Third World than any other institution, yet it remains largely unknown, even enigmatic. Although it claims to be a purely economic institution, the Bank wields enormous political power and has succeeded in making its own view of development appear to be the norm. In this richly illuminating and lively overview, Susan George and Fabrizio Sabelli examine the Bank's policies, its internal culture, and the interests it serves. They reveal a supranational, non-democratic, and extremely powerful institution that functions much like the medieval church or a monolithic political party, relying on rigid doctrine, hierarchy, and a rejection of dissenting ideas to perpetuate its influence. Its faith in orthodox economics, the idea of perpetual growth, and the capacity of the market to solve development problems is incompatible with its professed goals of helping the poor and protecting the environment. Faced with these contradictions, the Bank is increasingly struggling to reconcile the roles of commercial lender, policymaker, and great humanitarian. This book is crucial reading for any one interested in development and economy of the Third World, especially for international, political, and development economists

Hijacking America : how the religious and secular right changed what Americans think by Susan George( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and Japanese and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"George Bush leaves the White House in January 2009 and the United States goes back to "normal", right? Wrong, argues Susan George in this fascinating, thorough and often chilling account of the decades-long transformation of American society and political culture. Using the four "Ms"--Money, media, marketing, management--but above all with a keen sense of mission, the American secular and religious right has made its "long march through the institutions" and changed the way Americans think. As the left went about its business in blissful ignorance, convinced that its policies, programmes and projects spoke for themselves and would always prevail; the right's well-oiled machine of foundations, lobbies, think-tanks, publications, political cadres, lawyers and activist organisations slowly and strategically took over. A broad alliance of neo-liberals, neo-conservatives and the religious right successfully manufactured a new common sense, assaulted Enlightenment values and targeted the top of society where culture is created and legitimized, because they knew that ideas have consequences--and not just in the United States. Hijacking America is that rarity of a book, a thoroughly researched page-turner. Clearly and gracefully written, it will enthral the general reader while providing plenty of factual nourishment for the student of politics, culture, religion or international relations. And for all those who hope for a different America in the future, the first step is to hold the present one up to the light and understand how it got that way."--Publisher description
Shadow sovereigns : how global corporations are seizing power by Susan George( Book )

11 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Lobbying has long been part of the political landscape. But in recent years links between big business and government have become stronger and more far-reaching than ever. Global corporations now demand control over decisions affecting labour laws, finance, public health, food and agriculture, safety regulations, taxes and international trade and investment. They even claim the right to private tribunals where they can sue governments for passing laws that could harm their present or future profits. These business elites don t want to govern directly. They operate behind the scenes - directing planning, setting standards and fashioning government to maximise their own profits. Thanks to the UN Global Compact they have extended their influence to the highest levels of multilateral decision-making and now, via the Davos-inspired Global Redesign Initiative, they are setting their sights on managing world-wide public policy. Elected by and accountable to no one, secretive and highly organized, these shadow sovereigns are destroying the very notion of the common good and making a mockery of democracy. It is high time we challenged this assault on our rights and our institutions. In this incisive and clear-sighted book Susan George provides us with the practical knowledge to do just that"--Publisher description

Whose crisis, whose future? : towards a greener, fairer, richer world by Susan George( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crisis? Whose crisis? Today we are in the midst of a multifaceted crisis which touches the lives of everyone on the planet. Whether it's growing poverty and inequality or shrinking access to food and water, the collapse of global financial markets or the dire effects of climate change, every aspect of this crisis can be traced to a transnational neoliberal elite that has steadily eroded our rights and stripped us of power. And yet our world has never been so wealthy, and we have, right now, all the knowledge, tools and skills we need to build a greener, fairer, richer world. Such a breakthrough is not some far-fetched utopia, but an immediate, concrete possibility. Our future is in our hands.--Back cover
