Static : government liars, media cheerleaders, and the people who fight back by Amy Goodman( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The brother-sister journalist team of Amy and David Goodman once again take on government liars, corporate profiteers, and the media that has acted as their megaphone. They expose how the Bush administration has manipulated and fabricated news and how the corporate media has worked hand in glove with the powerful to deceive the public. The Goodmans cut through the spin and static to offer the truth about war, torture, and government control of the media. Mixing investigative reporting and interviews, Static presents voices of dissidents, activists, and others who are too often frozen out of official debate, to shed new light on urgent issues of war and peace. This book is a rallying call for people to take back our government, our media, and our world.--From publisher description
Standing up to the madness : ordinary heroes in extraordinary times by Amy Goodman( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A timely, inspiring, and even revolutionary look at who wields the greatest power in America--everyday people who take a chance and stand up for what they believe in--but also offers advice on what you can do to help. The sister-brother team of Amy and David Goodman traveled the country to detail the ways in which grassroots activists have taken politics out of the hands of politicians. As the Bush administration has waged war abroad and at home, it has catalyzed a vast groundswell of political action. This book tells the stories of everyday citizens who have challenged the government and prevailed. From African-American residents of deluged New Orleans who are fighting to regain their homes, to four librarians who refused to spy on their patrons, challenged the PATRIOT Act, and won, citizens are rising to extraordinary challenges--and changing the way that politics is done.--From publisher description

Fault lines : journeys into the new South Africa by David Goodman( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

South Africa has experienced one of the world's most dramatic political transformations. David Goodman, a journalist and activist who has witnessed South Africa's struggles since the darkest days of apartheid, chronicles the historic transition from apartheid to democracy. This compelling story is told through the lives of four pairs of South Africans who have experienced apartheid from opposite sides of the racial and political divide. Taken together, these profiles provide the first in-depth look at the social dynamics of post-apartheid South Africa. Part social history and part personal drama, Fault Lines is an account of what happens to real people when their country is reinvented around them. The struggle to reconcile past evils is captured in the stories of a former police assassin and his intended victim. The rise and fall of South African racism is portrayed through the lives of the late Prime Minister H.F. Verwoerd--the notorious "architect of apartheid"--And his grandson, now a member of the ruling African National Congress. The battle to break out of poverty is detailed in the story of two black women: one an impoverished domestic worker and new city councilor, the other a Mercedes-driving member of South Africa's new black elite. The struggle for the land is told through the eyes of two neighbors: a black farmer who was evicted from his lands in the 1980s and has returned to start over, and a conservative white farmer who participated in the eviction and now does business with the man whose life he nearly destroyed. These powerful stories are accompanied by the photography of award-winning South African documentary photographer Paul Weinberg.--Publisher description
