"A fascinating look at one of the greatest social maladies of our time: overconsumption and materialism. Hosted by National Public Radio's Scott Simon, the program explores both the comical and sobering aspects of our consumerism and its enormous impact on families, communities and the environment. With the help of historians and archival film, Affluenza reveals the forces that have dramatically transformed us from a nation that prizes thriftiness - with strong beliefs in 'plain living and high thinking' - into the ultimate consumer society"--Container
Culture jam : how to reverse America's suicidal consumer binge, and why we must by Kalle Lasn ( Book )
16 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and German and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Culture Jammers Network: We are a loose global network of artists, activists, writers, students, educators and entrepreneurs who want to launch the new social activist movement of the information age. Our aim is to topple existing power structures and forge a major shift in the way we will live in the twenty-first century. We believe culture jamming will become to our era what civil rights was to the '60s, what feminism was to the '70s, what environmental activism was to the '80s. It will alter the way we live and think. It will change the way information flows, the way institutions wield power, the way TV stations are run, the way the food, fashion, automobile, sports, music and culture industries set their agendas. Above all, it will change the way we interact with the mass media and the way meaning is produced in our society."--BOOK JACKET

Japanese woman ( Visual )
10 editions published between 1984 and 1996 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The lifestyle of women in Japan remained virtually unchanged for centuries. Then came World War II and Gen. McArthur's "Grand Design"--A plan for democracy that revolutionized the status of Japanese women. And yet, in some ways, things have not changed very much. Interviews with modern Japanese women, WW II and postwar footage, and depictions of the typical Japanese woman's lifestyle show that the West may have introduced "women's liberation" to Japan, but the women of this country are still searching for ways to overcome old prejudices and to develop their own unique approach to the issue

Barnbrook Bible, an artwork in itself, meticulously combines text, image and a diversity of reference material to give a complete picture of his output, including previously unpublished work." "The book showcases Barnbrook's creativity in many disciplines from film to graphic and font design, for which he is most famous. He has a broad spectrum of clients, all of whom have sought his singular graphic vision. This book also features an in-depth analysis of his groundbreaking design for the Damien Hirst book I Want To Spend The Rest Of My Life, Everywhere, With Everyone, One To One, Always, Forever, Now, a unique collaboration between an artist and designer." "Also included in this book are his personal political projects, which demonstrate the passionate belief underlying all his work, that graphic design should be a catalyst for discussion and change."--BOOK JACKET
